OK, let’s get this out of the way – no trip to Stockholm is complete without a visit to this shrine to pop’s most glamorous band. The iconic Swedish quartet pretty much single-handedly invented modern pop and a lot of thought has gone into the experience here. Sure, there are costumes and gold discs and film clips, but you can also perform with ABBA avatars – ABBA-tars? – and (virtually) try on some of their most famous outfits. You can’t just turn up; tickets must be bought online beforehand.
What is your Stockholm museum of choice? Maybe you want to immerse yourself in the grand history of this nation? History can be a bit heavy at times, so might you prefer to gaze at incredible art? Okay, fine, we’ll meet you at the ABBA museum for an afternoon of harmony and melody. The point is, the best museums in Stockholm cover plenty of ground.
Stockholm is a city that brims with impressive monuments and awesome attractions, making the Swedish capital one big open-air museum itself. That is true, but the culture waiting indoors deserves all the attention in the world. Stockholm is a city that demands excellence, whether that is in its excellent restaurants or exciting bars, and the museums of the Swedish capital more than hold up their end of the bargain.
