Finding your way to the Abba Museum in Djurgården

Stockholm as with much of the Baltic is a lot of water.  It is made up of 14 islands and 50 bridges. Finding your way round the many islands that make up Stockholm is key to get as much done as you can in a day. You can choose ferry or bus or metro as well as the many tours. Your shuttle bus will drop you in town near some versions of Hop On Hop Off bus or boat tours. Our film on the Old Town is essential viewing; it takes you across on the ferry to the Tivoli Park and Abba museum, then Jean walks back across the bridge back to the Old Town. The film will help you see where the places are and how they are joined. The great thing about the film is that it is like looking round, rather than looking at a map. Then when you look at the map it is more obvious where the islands are in relation to each other. Stockholm needs that and the general film really helps to quickly orientate and get your bearings.CLICK HERE for our new BALTIC CRUISE destinations menu – All parts and tours together, then a choice of every Baltic port in its own menu. CLICK HEREA full understanding of Stockholm and how much it has to offer might not happen until a second visit because whatever you do, whether boat or bus, it is not until you have done it once and walked and ferried that you see how it all joins up. There is no doubt that some forms of transport can be quicker for some journeys and the answer is not automatic. The medieval old town has had people migrating to it since the stone age and is a must.


Mamma Mia, Eurovision & Abba Museum – The interactive Abba museum, inspired by the success of the Beatles Museum in Liverpool,  is fun and is a must whatever your music tastes for it is a piece of real history.  A band that had huge success and still do, as their music is used in film and on stage. The Mamma Mia sensation has brought a whole new generation to the music who never saw them win Eurovision. Despite the popularity, few realise that much of their music is about being unhappy, breaking up, and divorce.CHAT GROUP – Cruise the Baltic Chat – New Group, be one of the first to join and start a thread on your forthcoming or past cruise by number – CLICK HERE TO SHARE & CHATThe museum offers an interactive commentary device and Jean highly recommends you give yourself a couple of hours there. Of the many strange exhibits there is Benny’s Piano, a piano linked to Benny’s own piano in his home, so when he plays at home, it plays. There is also a recreation of their Polar Studio. The night you leave some will dress up… just saying. This blog is hopefully one you will share.


The Abba Museum needs time, there lies the problem with the cruise stop in Stockholm, like so many it is too short. You cannot do everything in one day. This cruise often has an ‘Abba’ night after Stockholm and many will dress in glam rock. Here are some easy cheap accessories that will take up no room in your case and be cheaper to buy before you leave.
