More pictures from my trip to the ABBA Museum - starting off with two tour jackets....
Also in the touring section was a set of the original microphones which were used on stage by the group.
The re-creation if the "Arrival" helicopter was very popular - lots of people waiting in line to sit inside and have their picture taken.
The ABBA puppets I had seen before when the ABBA World exhibition was in London but they are always fun to see...
As an avid collector of ABBA records the next section was of great interest to me - amazing to see quite so many covers which I had never seen before...
Last picture for the update is a presentation celebrating 375,000,000 record sales - quite an achievement...

First set of pictures from my visit to the ABBA Museum in Stockholm on Saturday morning. I was a glorious morning in Stockholm (I will post pictures from the city later) so we walked from our hotel to the island where the museum is located.
The picture below is from the room where you wait until your allocated time slot. Upon entering the main display you are first taken into a room to watch a short film showing various clips of ABBA through the ages.
The first main room provides you with some background to each member of the group (the picture below is from the Agnetha section) as well as some of their early music.
You can re-create the Greatest Hits image by placing yourself at the centre of the group.
You then enter an area which talks about "Ring Ring" and the groups attempt at Eurovision in 1973. Included in this area is the telephone which if it rings means that you would be talking to one of the group !

For our trip to the ABBA Museum we stayed at the Hotel Clarion (the official hotel of the ABBA Museum) which is only a few minutes walk from the main train station.
Once we checked in we headed for the lifts to get to the ninth floor - when the doors opened life sized images of ABBA were wrapped around the walls.
"Dancing Queen" was playing in the lift - and there was a microphone (hanging down next to Bjorn's image) allowing you to join in and sing along with the music.

This week I have added a 3 CD box set to my collection - the CDs included are Waterloo, Agnetha & Frida The Voice Of Abba and The Music Still Goes On. For this last CD the name on the box is different to the one on the actual CD which is "Arrival, Ring Ring, Does Your Mother Know".
