Do you remember the Swedish pop group ABBA? ABBA were global superstars who dominated the pop music scene around the world in the 1970s and early 1980s. Although it has been over 30 years since they have split, they are still remembered in Sweden and around the world.
You can’t miss Abba Museum if you are in Stockholm and you are ABBAs fan. You will walk in and Dance out.
This one of the most popular attractions of Stockholm. It is situated on Djurgården, which is very close to Vasa Museum and many other attractions in Stockholm.
If you are a Millennial, you may remember the romantic comedy/musical Mamma Mia!, starring Meryl Streep, which featured ABBA’s music and was released in 2008.
The film was a huge hit, seen by over 50 million people and it made a lot of young people familiar with ABBA, considered to be one of the greatest pop bands in history. ABBA has been honored with the Swedish Music Hall of Fame.
ABBA the Museum in Stockholm is the ultimate homage to these great artists and has kept their legend alive for a new generation of fans. ABBA the Museum is situated on the quiet and picturesque island of Djurgården, and can be reached by a short walk from the city center in Stockholm. You can also get to the museum by catching a local tramline.
If you are a fan of ABBA, you will find a lot of things to look forward to at the museum, such as an exhibit of the stage clothes worn by different members of the band; rare footages of their concerts, interviews and more in an interactive setting.
Once you buy a ticket at ABBA the Museum, you will get an ID and an Avatar. So upon entering the museum, you (rather, your avatar) will be able to wear digital costumes and dance with the holograms of the superstars of ABBA, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.
You can then share videos or photos of your performance with ABBA on Facebook, Instagram, and other social media sites. It is a whole lot of fun for everyone, especially for kids and teenagers, who want to know what the fuss is all about.
One of the most interesting exhibits at ABBA the Museum is an actual helicopter, which was featured on the cover of the 1976 ABBA album, Arrival. You will also like the Polar recording studio. Here you will find mini recording booths where you can create your own super hit.
Also interesting are the audio guides, which feature members of the band talking about themselves and their stories, before joining ABBA, their experience as the greatest Swedish superstars of their generation and life after ABBA.
Did you know that once ABBA broke up in 1982, they have never got together again? Indeed, rumors are that none of the members of the group can stand each other!
But when they were together, ABBA created magic.
You can now be a part of that; visit Abba the Museum during your trip to Stockholm.
