What people are saying about Stockholm

Это было просто чудесно! Музей - супер! Меги моей супруге очень нравится творчество группы ABBA. В музее мы получили истинное удовольствие.. Особенно экспозиция аудио-студия, уголок "Mamma Mia", участие в голографическом выступлении группы. Огромное спасибо!

What a journey, the ABBA museum was first class. Good interaction and very informative about the group. Such a shame they broke up, but that's history.
