Expressions of interest now being taken. Date and exact details still being arranged.

Director of Research, Fred Hocker, will take us on an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the conservation facilities and enlighten us with the many stories that have been revealed from investigating the remarkably preserved wreck of the Vasa.

As well as having an amazing experience, members can earn 5 NAS credits by participating in the discussion and practical sessions (more details to come!).

The tour costs £180/person for access to the museum. Transport, food and accommodation are extra.

Only 12 places are available and members can book for themselves and one non-member.

Tickets will be on sale soon.

Why not make a weekend of it and explore the many museums and heritage sites that Stockholm has to offer?

Suggested Weekend Schedule
If you are in Stockholm on the Saturday, you might want to check out:


8:20am: meet at the museum front entrance so that we can walk together to a side entrance where we will meet Fred Hocker at 8.30am. Late comers will be left behind!

Our day will commence with a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum stores led by Director of Research, Fred Hocker, with time in the afternoon to explore the rest of the museum at our leisure. We will also run a discussion session in the afternoon for those that would like to earn 5 credits towards their NAS Certificate or Award. The museum closes at 5pm.

The NAS reserves the right to cancel courses or events 4 weeks in advance of a course if insufficient bookings have been received. Please do not book non-refundable travel and accommodation until you have been notified by email that the course is definitely going ahead.

Participants are permitted to cancel and receive a refund (minus the transaction fees incurred by the payment provider) up to four weeks in advance of a course  or event date. They are also able to defer their booking to any other NAS course or event instead of receiving a refund. If participants wish to cancel within the four weeks prior to the course or event, they will forfeit their booking fee unless there are unless circumstances which the NAS, in its absolute discretion, considers sufficiently mitigating as to warrant a partial or full refund.  

Applications for a refund within the four weeks prior to the course or event must be submitted in writing (electronic submission is acceptable) and such evidence as the NAS may reasonably require must be provided to support the application.
