ABBA the Museum: Why It Is My favorite Museum

I have mentioned several times that ABBA the Museum is my favorite museum in the world. These are some of the reasons why I love it.

As you might remember, a few months ago I published a collaboration on which some travel bloggers talked about their favorite museums. In that moment, I expressed that my favorite museum was ABBA the Museum in Stockholm, Sweden, even though this was not an art museum. Thanks to TBEX Europe I had the chance to go to ABBA the Museum and I confirmed why it is my favorite museum.

The day we visited this museum as part of the TBEX activities, I got finally to see the Eurovision 60 years exposition. I am a huge ABBA fun but I am a bigger Eurovision freak. I couldn’t hold myself and these were some of the things I did:

These are some of the reasons why I love this museum:

1. You will love it if you are either an ABBA or an Eurovision fan.

First thing, this is a great place if you are either an ABBA fan or an Eurovision fan. If you count with one of these, it will be easier for you to actually enjoy it. Is imposible not being an ABBA or an Eurovision fan and not enjoying singing and dancing all over the place to these songs. This museum in fact is a paradise for any Eurovision fan.

2. If you are a music fan in general.

The Swedish Music Hall of Fame is located in this museum. Anyone who is a music fan in general knows that Sweden is one of the biggest musical exporters in the world. Definitely, this museum celebrates the Swedish Pop Music that is still praised around the world. You might think you have an idea of Swedish music, but once you get there, you discover you only knew a little. Getting to know more about Swedish musical hits thrugh the years was something I loved.

3. If you enjoy karaoke and dancing

Yes, I am a HUGE karaoke fan, so, I will totally love a museum that allows me to showcase my amazing singing skills. Besides learning from the history of a great band, you actually get as well in touch with them by singing those songs that made them famous. It is impossible not trying to hum to “Dancing Queen”.

4. If you want to learn more about the biggest Swedish band

ABBA is the biggest Swedish band. I am pretty sure that everyone can recall at least one of their songs, even when they don’t even know it is originally from them. If you don’t know who they are or are not sure about their songs, this museum does a great job on letting you know all the details about their career. You will sure know a lot more about them after leaving and of course, why not getting souvenirs in the store?

5. Because is part of Swedish culture.

If you are in Stockholm, you will see Gamla Stan, Skansen, maybe the Royal Palace and the Museum of Art. The reason why you will try to do all of this is because you are trying to get in touch with Swedish culture but, how can you get in touch with Swedish culture if you actually don’t know nothing about the first Swedish band to win Eurovision? The Swedish culture has a whole cult for Eurovision, starting by how big is the Melodifestivalen, their national selection for their Eurovision representative. If you want to know how this cult was actually born, this museum is essential for understanding.

    The only reason why I didn’t visit the Abba museum when I was in Stockholm was because it wasn’t included in the Stockholm Pass and the price was too high. I wish I would have though, I love Abba, I grew up with their songs.

    It’s my favourite museum too! Well, close second after Vasamuseet 🙂 But I have been there several times already so that says a lot.
    I was at the Eurovision in Stockholm and it was an unforgettable experience.
