Last week, the new ABBA Museum opened here in Stockholm. I went there with a friend today. It was great, and I highly recommend going there!
The museum has lots of interesting information, lots of old photos that are very nice, replicas of important things like the studio ABBA used, lots and lots of things you can try yourself (sing and dance together with ABBA!), old costumes, etc.
There was also another exhibition included in the price that showed things from Swedish music since the 1920s up until now. That was also quite nice.
|I got a very exclusive "one of the first weeks" tickets. Also, the ticket looks like an SJ train ticket.|
|Outside the museum you can remove any ABBA face you want and put your own face there instead. I picked the only one that has the same hair color as me :-)|
|You can sit on the bench ABBA sat on and take photos of yourself with their photos.|
|You can photograph yourself in a helicopter that looks like the one on the album cover of "Arrival".|
|In one room you can scan your face with a Kinect machine and then dance around to ABBA music. The Kinect will overlay your face on ABBA bodies, and make digital snapshots that you can download later.|
|You can go on stage, and sing and dance to famous ABBA tunes...|
|... together with digital ABBA performing live together with you! (This technology looks great!) You can download a video of your performance later.|
|You can dance in a disco room too.|
