ABBA Museum Expands - Now With Extra Room At Sea !
In collaboration with Strömma, ABBA The Museum is starting a brand new sightseeing tour about ABBA. The boat tour, ABBA The Museum/Boat Tour, runs daily from Strömkajen and ends at Allmänna Gränd, around 200 metres from ABBA The Museum.
During the 50 minute boat trip around the scenic island of Djurgården, the tour visits several places linked to the pop group, while guests listen to stories, funny anecdotes and many well-known ABBA songs. The tour is offered in English and Swedish.
The tour is a collaboration between Strömma and ABBA The Museum and ties into the same storytelling approach featured at ABBA The Museum but in sightseeing format. The tour manuscript is written and narrated by Ingmarie Halling, curator at ABBA The Museum, in the spotlight right now with her book “ABBA – The Backstage Stories.”
“ABBA’s music has played an important role in people’s lives around the world and I believe there is great interest among visitors, from both Sweden and abroad, for this type of sightseeing tour in Stockholm. This new collaboration with ABBA The Museum opens up an exciting opportunity to combine our experience of quality sightseeing tours with their compelling story about ABBA,” said Oscar Carheden, COO of Strömma’s sightseeing operations in Sweden.
“Boating, listening to the story of ABBA and hearing their amazing music is naturally a wonderful Stockholm experience for all – fans, tourists and those of us who live here. We see the boat tour as an extra room for our museum – but at sea! It is a good fit since there is a strong connection between boating, Djurgården and ABBA,” said Catarina Falkenhav, COO of ABBA The Museum.
