I´m thinking in visiting the Museum next July but before planning my trip I would to know more information about a visit there: How long does it takes to visit the Museum? How many days are necessary to visit Stockholm and besides the ABBA Museum, there are monuments and museums worth visiting? I´m looking for a central hotel but not very expensive? How about using the public transports to visit the city?
Thank you for your help and I wish all members a great 2016 with a lot of ABBA music Vila
It is my second upload of that film, the first had ABBA songs playing ever so distantly in the background, just to liven it up a little, but of course those silly blockers came into effect & I got copyright infringement notices for all the tracks used. I wrote to Universal, I said, oh come on, this is the perfect ad for your music & to promote Stockholm, I never even gopt a reply back. So I removed the film, re-edited it with the music removed & uploaded it again. The only bit that seems to have slipped through is The Visitors, mainly because I used the version of it I found with the vocals removed.
Glad you enjoy it, try to use the proxy thing fafner suggests as it really will give you perfect views and info on where to stand, how to go to certain areas all ABBA related.
And if you are reading this Universal, don't be such meanies!
Hi, I would love to visit the ABBA museum in the future. I hope that there will be specially organised coach tours to Stockholm including a visit to the museum. But that is asking for a lot. Never mind, we can but wait in anticipation.
I may visit the museum next year with a friend who insists he wants to take me but I suspect it will be very much like the ABBAWorld exhibition I went to in London at Earl's Court? Even so, just to visit Stockholm would be a dream come true.
I thought as much, Graham. Still, IF I go, there are many other things I'd like to do such as visit THE 'Park Bench' (if I could find the bloody thing), see The Visitors room, take a wee journey up to Ekero... 😇 nah, I'd not do that. I'm sure she's not too keen on people pitching up at her home.
I bought some postcards and an ABBA tin when I went to ABBAworld but I'm not really one for souvenirs. My memories of the day are enough- making a twat of myself in the helicopter and dancing with the avatars 😳
I've been to both. The Museum is definitely the better of the two. The costume displays were my favourite parts. You may need to pull some 20-denier tights over your head and rob a bank before departure though. Stockholm is a beautiful city and worth every moment you can lavish on it - but it can be eyewateringly expensive. The Museum shop too.
On the subject of the Museum shop - especially online - I am baffled that they have not set themselves up as the go-to site for media and merch. It should be the one place you're guaranteed to get all official releases in all formats - CD, vinyl, digital, DVD, cassette, box sets. Unless it's been deleted, it should be available for instant purchase or order (with a practicable lede time). And their product descriptions need some attention. Tracklistings, anybody?!
I don't think there's much I'd want to buy from an ABBA gift shop. The ABBA the Album tin I bought has already got a dent in it and I used it to keep silver change in. I did consider buying the ABBA coloured brick thingymebobs but they weren't very big.
I suspect if I did go to Stockholm I wouldn't have enough time to fit in all the things I'd like to do and would come home sad. Those things being visiting ABBA-related places (photo shoots and the like).
Not to pour water on fireworks.... ^^^ I have been to both, and there is very little difference between them except for one obvious fact.. the price of everything at the museum...
but hey, if your there, why not go, we only live once as they say.....
That’s good to hear. I went to the ABBA World thing - was it back in 2010? Quite a long time ago anyway. I thought it was really good, but I don’t feel the need to go to the museum. I’m put off after that “Super Troupers” exhibition last year or whenever it was. That was absolutely bloody awful.
