Strangely Specific Museums That You Shouldn’t Miss in Stockholm

Stockholm is home to more museums than we can count, but not all of them are dedicated to art, science, and history. Some of the most popular museums in this city are strangely specific and very distinctively Swedish, and that happens to be the case with these three.

ABBA The Museum

The iconic pop band ABBA is one of the first things that pops to mind when someone mentions Sweden, so it’s not a surprise to see there’s a whole museum dedicated to its legacy. In addition to pop group memorabilia, this museum also features interactive exhibits, including a studio and dance floor.

Museum of Spirits

Located a short walk away from the previous museum, this one is just as weirdly specific and equally exciting. It features exhibits on the history and culture of alcohol in Sweden, and it comes with an art gallery and a bar on its premises.

Vasa Museum

One of Stockholm’s top tourist attractions, this maritime museum deserves a spot on your travel itinerary even if you’re not crazy about naval history. It’s best known for displaying the fully intact historic ship Vasa which sank on her maiden voyage during the 17th century before becoming the shining star of this museum.
