Stockholm Arlanda’s ABBA exhibition has been moved to Terminal 2. Items on display include stage costumes and unique photos of ABBA’s victory with “Waterloo” at the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton and from their global tours. In addition, a sing-along booth has been set up where people can sing their own ABBA song and take photos or film their own performance.
The exhibition, which up until now has been located in Terminal 5, has been very popular especially with arriving international passengers. Many react positively to the music they recognise and pose for photos of themselves and their travel companions by the photos.
“With over 20 million passengers a year, Stockholm Arlanda Airport is the most important gateway to Stockholm and Sweden. We want to be able to welcome passengers and visitors by showing them what the region has to offer, and clearly ABBA The Museum is a new and very popular tourist attraction,” says Kjell-Åke Westin, airport director at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.
Sweden is a country that is generally dependent on exports, and its relatively large share of music exports has been one of the country’s distinguishing features.
“ABBA was the first really big Swedish music export, and there have been many acts in their wake. So it feels really good to be able to give visitors a taste of ABBA The Museum here at Stockholm Arlanda, which facilitates a large share of Sweden’s international contacts and tourism,” says Mr Westin.
