SOME MUSIC NEVER DIES - IT MULTIPLIES
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. 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.
ABBA The Museum – now the full story!
In the same playful way as the rest of our exhibition at ABBA The Museum, we are now delighted to share the story of what happened after 1982 when Björn, Benny, Frida and Agnetha took a break.
Now the full story
Our focus once again is on interactives that enhance the story as well as the analogue way of telling it.
Here you can try your hand at conducting a virtual orchestra playing a piece of the music score from Chess, you can sing along with the band members in Benny Andersson’s orchestra, and – using projection mapping – you can help Donna in Mamma Mia! to paint her house before the wedding.
Watch new, never-before-seen interviews, as well as a lot of film clips from these 35 odd years, and photos, photos, photos!
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.
