SOME MUSIC NEVER DIES - IT MULTIPLIES
Breaking up is never easy …
… and we never really broke up. It was a gradual thing. We didn’t say good-bye. It was more like: “Let’s go out there and try the new stuff we’ve been wanting to do for so long and then we’ll get back together again when the time is right.” And we did all that other stuff, but the time somehow never seemed right to get back together again. By the mid-80s we all thought ABBA would fade into oblivion. Little did we I know …
Here, dear visitor, is where the post ABBA journey starts. The flight you’re boarding will take you to London and then out into the world. You will arrive at a fun fair, a regular pleasure ground. Because that’s what it turned out to be. We had the privilege of being able to pursue the thoughts and ideas we had; musical theatre, movies, fiddlers, solo recordings, film music etc. And we enjoyed the rides. Roller coasters driven by the sheer joy of creating new things. That journey hasn’t stopped … yet.

ABBA The Museum presents the full story
Thirty-six years after ABBA fell silent their music is still heard everywhere, and people all over the world sing along with the choruses. From Malmö to Melbourne, Durban to Delhi, Seoul to St Louis the phenomenon goes on and on. Not by preserving history and safeguarding the legacy, but by constantly evolving. New generations listen to ABBA for the first time and fall head over heels in love.
We are proud to present a new permanent part of ABBA The Museum where we present the whole story. Premiere in May 2018.
