When I walked in the front doors and my eyes took in the sight of that ship, I sort of lost my breath for a minute. It is magnificent. Bad luck (the ship sinking on it’s maiden voyage) + good luck (the Baltic Sea not being very salty and wood eating sea worms not being present in the waters) = a very, very cool thing to behold! King Gustav II Adolph commissioned this ship, and oversaw the planning of it, so when it sank and they wanted someone to blame, they couldn’t blame the Dutch ship builders, because that would have been like blaming the king, and we couldn’t have that.
