About
ABBA The Museum is more than an ordinary museum. Naturally, the members’ costumes, gold records, original items, memorabilia, and much, much more are here. But at this museum you are an important part of the experience! We simply want you to experience the feeling of being the 5th ABBA member. To find out what you would look like in their legendary stage costumes, to sing at the Polar Studio, to experience exciting 3D avatars, and to enter the stage together with the band.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Djurgården & Djurgårdsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take endless walks through a beautiful park landscape without having to leave the city, but also offers an incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.

I was dragged kicking and screaming to the Abba Museum but found some of the history that surrounds the band and individuals associated with it, quite interesting. Firstly you need to buy your tickets online. It pays to buy them a few days ahead if you want a specific timeslot. You do not need to print them as the QR Code on your phone is fine. Take the tram there as it stops right outside. Tram tickets can be bought onboard but with one quirk. If there are more than one of you, you can only buy one ticket with one particularly credit card. So two of you will need two separate cards. Wierd I know!
The museum itself has been expanded to include a Mamma Mia section. Lots of photo opportunities. It will take you about an hour or so.

Loads of positives - the whole ABBA story is exceptionally well presented and documented and if you take the time to read through the posted texts by the exhibits you will really take something away with you. There are also some fun activities if you wish to participate and we found the whole experience to be innovative and well worth the time and money. One or two slight drawbacks exist - the entrance and ticket purchase area is a little chaotic"trafficwise" and deadly if cruise ship parties are in the house! This is one attraction we did not book on line in advance and had to wait 20 minutes to buy a ticket and an extra 45 minutes for a slot. Even with restricted entry numbers per time slot, the rooms, which are quite small, were rather crowded. Definitely recommend making an on-line prior reservation and despite the wait, we walked out very happily!

If you’re an ABBA fan then this a MUST visit when visiting Stockholm but make sure you leave plenty of time. I spent over 4 hours in the museum as I wanted to look at and read everything. There’s also plenty of interactive things to do as well including singing and dancing with the band, quizzes and having a go on the mixing decks amongst others. The option to record a song was unfortunately not available on the day I visited.
If you’re not an avid fan it’s still great and 2 hrs might be enough, but for those that are then plan for longer and book in advance with the option of an audio guide. The guide was excellent and really enhanced the experience but when I went (Friday afternoon) there were no guides available for people just turning up on the day.
All in all - a great day out

I liked the museum but since I am someone who is very easily overstimulated, I also went kind of crazy inside. I can imagine spending 1+ hour inside, but because there are multiple videos and songs playing in every room, there is a lot of noise and a lot of stimuli. I will definitely recommend this museum to my extroverted friend but will warn people with ASS (and similar disorders) that it is an intense experience. I advised the staff to hang up a sign to avoid possible crises in the future. But very nice museum and staff!

This museum is a little bit interesting, but over-rated as an activity in Stockholm. As big fans of ABBA, we had high hopes, and were so eager to go that we bought tickets on line. On arrival, we still needed to wait in line at the entrance. Frustrating, but whatever. At the cashier counter, she said to just show the QR code at the entrance. Yet, there’s no separate line or signage for ticket holders, so we had been stuck behind two large groups who were, very slowly, buying tickets at the counter. Suggestion: have two lines, one for buying tickets, one for those who already have them.

You then descend into the basement of the building to the museum. It begins with a video on a large, curved screen that had great potential, but honestly wasn’t that good. Think about a video that has hundreds of 1-second snippets of music, images, and talking. It’s like, what? Flash, bang, boom …. To me, it didn’t actually respect ABBA; it was a modern attempt at hype.

You then walk into several rooms with lots of memorabilia, and a few virtual experiences. But, the whole place is so tight, and so crowded with people, in spite of the allegedly carefully-managed “timed entry” system, which struck us as not particularly timed at all, that it’s somewhat impossible to really experience everything. We felt claustrophobic the entire time.

We left feeling like this was an interesting effort at a tribute to a great band, but not so interesting that it would be on our list of top 25 things to do in Stockholm. We were disappointed overall, and more so if considering the experience relative to the cost of entry, and how we could otherwise have spent the time.

Spent 20 more minutes trying to buy online tickets outside the museum because the sign said you had to buy the tickets online. Turns out you can tell the attendant you want to visit the store, then walk up to the ticket entrance, where you can buy a ticket from a human being. Saved us valuable time.

We primed the kids for this by playing mamma mia and dancing queen at home a few times first so they were familiar with the songs, and they absolutely loved the "recording studio", the stage performance with holograms and the little Boothby the end where you can sing along to an acoustic "thank you for the music".

I thought it would be really hard to get on these things but seems most people don't want to sing and dance in front of strangers so there wasn't too much waiting.

If you aren't going to give those things a go and you don't have kids then I think it would require you to be a bit of an abba fan to make this worthwhile - a family of 4 came in at 69 króna, although that's not out of line for djurgarden museums.

COVID alert…although this museum contains some really cool facts and exhibits, it is in a dark, poorly ventilated basement with many small rooms and too many people. My husband and I were both thinking “we got to leave here” but didn’t say it soon enough and left after 20/25 minutes. That was a Saturday. Started feeling sick Tuesday, test positive on Wednesday. Although you can never be 100% sure, but feel confident this is where we got it speaking as a health care provider. If you go, where mask, don’t touch!

The museum gives a good picture of ABBAs story from before they met till after they broke up. There is a lot of information and things to look at. You can also sing along with them and other interactive stuff, if you are into that kind of thing. The audioguide comes in many different languages and the Swedish and English version is recorded by the ABBA members themselves. It gives a little more information than just reading the signs, all though a lot of it is the same as you can read.

A thing you should be aware of, is that you can't by tickets at the entrance. You can only buy them online. And if you buy them online, when you are at the entrance, you may have to wait a while for an open timeslot. I waited an hour and 15 minutes. So remember to buy your tickets in advance.

I would recommend to set aside 2-3 hours for the visit. I was there for 2,5 hours.

Maybe nice for true Abba fans, but technically terrible - many virtual experiences and technical things were out of order. There was even problems with sound, which is quite hilarious as it is a music theme museum. Value for money really poor, cannot recommend.

The locker room doors were quite funny, everyone in the room was struggling with them 😂
