Stockholm’s Vasa Museum only has one major artifact—and it’s a great one. The Vasa was a 17th century warship that sank almost immediately after leaving the port, and it was salvaged about 300 years later in nearly perfect condition. Unlike some museums, where you feel overwhelmed by the scope or number of artifacts, the Vasa’s singular, fascinating approach will definitely make you feel like you learned something monumental. —Lilit Marcus
