“Fun and interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

If you are an Abba fan then this must be on your list of places to visit in Stockholm. We were able to purchase our tickets on line and choose a time to visit. We walked from the city and must say that the museum wasn't that easy to find as there were no signposts for it as there were for the Vasa museum. However, once there we exchanged our online code for tickets and as we were early went in search of coffee and a toilet, this was a bit of a problem as in order to access these facilities you had to enter the museum itself which you couldn't do until the time of your ticket.
Once inside the museum the set up was very good with background info on the band members and opportunities for photos "with" them. There were several interacitve activities too which didn't involve queueing for long because the number of people is carefully controlled with the time ticket. After the visit you can download your singing with the holographic band but this was a disappointing 30 seconds when the actual activity must have been a couple of minutes. Also, the song recording isn't downloadable as you just get a score.
On exiting the museum we decided to get the ferry back which turned out to be round the corner and literally a 5 minute walk past some cafes which we wished we had known about earlier!
The length of time needed is around 1.5 hours.

“A shrine for any ABBA fan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I actually saw ABBA live in 1979! So had to see this. It is underground and can feel a bit warm. All their stuff is there. I was very interested with some of the 70s technology they used - some of it may now seem dated but for its time was very advance (mixing console), all of it explained in useful English side captions. The gift shop takes NO CASH only cards.

“A trip down memory lane”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

I don't know when I've had such fun at a museum, this place is totally interactive - it was fun to hear the old tracks, dance in videos with the group and even sing with the band. I'm not usually a museum fan but I found this to be totally interesting and was shocked to find that I'd spent nearly two hours here when I finally emerged.

“A warm comfortable tribute”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

If you love even one ABBA song, or a raving fan, then this is the place to come. Its not often you can come to auch an interactive experience and renergise your incredible respect / love / fandom for the supergroup.
You need a payment card (visa etc) as this is a cashless museum. You will see why when you get there.
Take the audio guide option (swedish and english versions only) and let the tech enhance your visit.
Being highly interactive, yiu can participate in many activities and link them to your ticket number for wen retreival later.
Real, genuine and professional. Worth every second.

“Incredible”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Well worth a visit but get there early (as we did) because the people start arriving en masse. So much to see and while we spent a couple of hours there, could easily have spent the entire day. Several interactive activities too which make it even mor interesting. Fascinating place.
