“fby”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Completely different Museum from what I would had expected. A clever mix of Art, Health and alcohol related culture in Sweden. A little bit heavy on Absolut Vodka, but very interesting.
I recommend it highly.

“Little gem on Djurgarden”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

I can across this by accident after visiting Skansen and on my way to Vasa.

This little gallery all about Absolute and Swedens love/hate relationship with alcohol was both informative and interactive.

At 100SEK for enterance fees, hardly the cheapest but it still beats the Abba museum and ice bar near central station at a whopping 190SEK each to get in there.

As you enter the gallery, you come to a small room with art works depicting Absolut. You also get a 'free-bie' souvenir of a replica catalogue from 1986 regarding artwork on Absolut.

The main museum provides a juxtaposition on Swedens strict government run liquor stores and the historical propaganda surrounding this (although to be fair Canada has a similar approach to alcohol with LCBOs and so on) as well as the creation of Absolut vodka and the artistic identity surrounding this. There is also exhibition and artistic pieces surrounding the drinking culture with younger people.

The gallery also had an exhibition called 'rude girls (yes they are rude pictures) but this didn't interest me.

If you are interested in Absolut and drinking then go and visit as I feel it can be recommended

“Absolutely enjoyable”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

This "museum" is different - and refreshingly so. It combines the history of Absolut Vodka production with a great creative art experience. Beginning with andy Warhol, the museum features many works of art - some very innnovative - featuring the classic absolut bottle! Priceless!

“A unique experince”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

This museum has moved and is now called the Spirt Museum. It is based right behind the Vasa Museum at 38, Djurgården. The highlight is an art exhibition, showing some of the original pieces by Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Helmut Newton, Damien Hirst, Louise Bourgeois, David Shrigley, Douglas Gordon, Sylvie Fleury, Dan Wolgers and Hung Tung-Lu. The tour guide is really enigmatic and throughout the visit he explains the growth of Absolute Vodka alongside the changes in the Swedish drinking cultures. The exhibitions are interactive, with the scent of different flavor vodkas mingled with scenes of spring, summer and autumn. Sadly you get to see the tasting room but not try any vodka. However they have a restaurant and outdoor bar with fantastic views of the Djurgården. Not a museum for children.

“Probably better drunk.”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

For the 100kr entry fee it was a small display. I felt like there was a lot of poorly thought out statements rather than interesting facts.

Some of the interactive sections were very well done. The art walking in was fun.

Would I return sober? I very much doubt it.
