Spring is near! This year, we’re ushering in springtime with a baby hangout, a deep dive into the world of the Vikings, and shipwreck theme weekends. Brighten up your days with these and other fun events at the Museum of Wrecks.

Viking harbours in Hedeby and Sigtuna

The lecture will be held by Sven Kalmring, curator of the Late Iron Age collections at the National Historical Museums in Stockholm and associate professor at Stockholm University, and Johan Runer, doctor of archaeology and curator at the National Maritime and Transport Museums.

  • 10 April, lecture starts at 18.00. Museum and bar open until 20.00.

Stockholm Culture Night

How does free admission sound? Or a fire show, a look at a dive truck, or a pop-up tour? And don’t forget the popcorn. Come and celebrate Stockholm’s iconic Culture Night at Vrak. During the evening, we’ll be doing pop-up tours about the different wrecks in the Baltic Sea. You can have a bite to eat or a drink at our café Mackverket, too.

The Osmund wreck – theme weekend

Join the museum’s knowledgeable guides on a special tour of the so-called Osmund wreck from the 16th century. What was in the cargo when the ship sank, and why is it called the Osmund wreck?

  • 25-26 May, tours in Swedish at 11.00 and 14.00.
  • Tour in English at 12 noon and 15.00.

The Osmund wreck

Lectures and evening opening hours. This ship, carrying various kinds of cargo, was probably a common sight both in the port of Stockholm and on the Baltic Sea during the 16th century. But from an archaeological perspective, the Osmund wreck is the first of its kind. In 2024, new investigations will take place on the Osmund wreck. The goal is to salvage two barrels for analysis of the fabled osmund iron. The barrels containing the osmunds have proven to be uniquely designed for osmund iron— but why? The investigations also aim to document construction timbers from the stern, with the hope of being able to reveal what the transom looked like. Thanks to grants from the Voice of the Ocean Foundation, the Museum of Wrecks and Jernkontoret can continue their joint research on the osmund trade across the Baltic Sea.

  • 29 May at 18.00. Museum and bar area open until 20.00.
