ABBA museum in Stockholm is a highly recommended place for not only ABBA fans, but for everyone who is interested in music history! It’s not only an exhibition of ABBA memorabilia such as instruments, golden records, outfits but a great interactive experience that invites you to dance, sing and mix music. As said at the entrance – Walk in, dance out.
In the early 70s, when Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad became ABBA, all four were already well-known in their home-country of Sweden. This part of museum shows and tells the stories of their early years.
The Polar Studio and Viggso Writing Hut were ABBA’s most important working environment, they felt there the most at home.
Nobody who has ever seen ABBA’s spectacular stage costumes will ever forget them. There is a wide range of costumes from different tours and promotion visits on display of the museum.
Being an internationally famous pop group means plenty of journeys across the globe. ABBA received a legendary reception in Europe, Australia, the United States and Japan. The list of ABBA awards is huge and some of the them are presented at the museum.
The time has come to enter the 80s, and at the same time the ABBA era was drawing to its close. The group’s 8th and the final studio album, The Visitors was released in November 1981.
The ABBA went their separate ways at the end of 1982, Bjorn and Benny took on task of composing a musical. The musical “Help wanted” premiered at the Orion Theatre in Stockholm in 2013, and contains music produced by Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson.
