Mingle dinner & Networking Party at the world famous Vasa Museum

In the large Ship Hall stands the 69 meter-long warship Vasa. It sank on its maiden voyage in the middle of Stockholm in 1628, and was salvaged 333 years later in 1961. For nearly half a century the ship has been slowly, deliberately and painstakingly restored to a state approaching its original glory.
The Vasa is the only surviving & preserved 17th  century ship in the world, and a unique art treasure. More than 95 percent of the ship is original, and it is decorated with hundreds of carved sculptures.

The Vasa Museum is the most visited museum in Scandinavia, with over one million visitors a year.

We welcome you to our Networking Party in this unique place.

We meet and mingle, food & drinks are served from nice buffets by the war ship. It is the ultimate experience of Swedish history combined with the finest food and drinks and a great opportunity to network.

During the evening you will of course also be able to walk around and explore the museum.

Just close to the ship, in the Vasa Restaurant, we will arrange a full bar and a dance floor especially created for you. Here you can buy drinks in the bar and swirl around freely on the dance floor after finishing your buffet dinner in the ship hall.

Cost: 750 SEK per person for this event
