Plunge into the frankly entertaining and not at all nostalgic 1970s amid the looks and songs of the period.
Sequined dresses, platform shoes, gold and platinum records everything is here, including the starry guitar Bjorn Ulvaeus played on April 6, 1974, the night Abba won the Eurovision song contest with ‘Waterloo'. As cultish as one of Jimi Hendrix's axes, this particular guitar was lost and then found in a garage in Germany. You might not be able to play on it, but you can pretend you're an Abba member anyway.Try their hologram stage costumes, sing ‘Mamma Mia', and leave with your own recorded interpretation! The Abba museum adjoins the Swedish Music Hall of Fame museum, devoted to the pantheon of Swedish music of the 20th-century.
Those who visit it discover that Sweden exports as much music internationally as Ikea does furniture!
