ABBA remains Sweden's most successful band of all time, with sales of 378 million albums around the world. ABBA The Museum spans the band's career all the way from the start in 1970, via the breakthrough with Waterloo in 1974, the grand world tours and finally, the split in 1983. Since then, ABBA has lived on through a wide range of musical projects run by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, whose musical Mamma Mia! revived the public's interest in ABBA's music yet again. In 2013, ABBA Gold was officially named the best-selling CD ever in England. The new museum offers an overview of the band, the music and the unlikely success they experienced in the '70s and '80s. An interactive music documentary invites you backstage as well as on stage and in front of it. Spend approximately 90 minutes inside the museum.
Then, on a panoramic drive, you will view the Royal Opera, which was the scene of ABBA's legendary 1976 royal wedding gala performance, and where Benny and Anni-Frid lived in the Old Town. Your guide will point out many other city highlights along the way.
This tour is available only to guests whose cruise does not begin or end in Stockholm.
