If you visit only one site in Stockholm, the Vasa Museum should be it. This 17th-century wooden ship was the Titanic of its day, an ornate warship commissioned by the king that sank on its maiden voyage in 1628. In fact, it only managed to sail one nautical mile before keeling over in Stockholm harbor, where it remained submerged for centuries before being raised in 1961. The Baltic Sea isn't salty enough for the shipworm, which destroys most wooden wrecks, so the Vasa is fantastically well-preserved. The museum exhibits enhance the experience: Start with the documentary about the salvage operation, then check out partial re-creations of the ship's interior and multimedia exhibitions about the investigation into who was responsible for the sinking.
