Museum Monday Episode 1: The Rise of ABBA

Posted 30 May, 2016, 16:59

The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the longest running television shows in the world. For 60 years the contest has produced hit after hit, created global superstars and provided many memorable TV moments. In May 2016 an official exhibition dedicated to the Eurovision Song Contest opened at ABBA The Museum in Stockholm. The exhibition features some of the most memorable moments from the Eurovision Song Contest as well as some of the most eye-catching costumes from the years. Every Monday for the next 12 weeks we will take a trip down memory lane, looking back at specific moments in Eurovision history. We hope you enjoy Museum Mondays! ABBA is arguably the most famous and most successful act to win the Eurovision Song Contest. It is therefore fitting that we should launch Museum Mondays with an interview with Björn Ulvaeus himself! Don’t forget to check out our forthcoming weekly videos.
