ABBA The Museum opened in May 2013 to tell the story of one of the greatest pop bands in history. In classic museum format, the museum features environments that resemble the places where the stars lived, worked and created the music, showcasing original clothing and props as well as interviews with the band members and their closest friends and colleagues. But unlike the classic museum, technology plays a vital role in the exhibition to aid telling the story and including the visitor with interactive features used to activate them and to challenge their skills. The exhibition features an interactive application system where visitors are invited to take on different roles in the band with singing, dancing and even stage performances. Visitors’ experiences are saved by each application in various formats onto the visitor’s ticket and the visitor can later enjoy them and download them from the website.

This talk will focus on the interactive applications and the system architecture used in the museum and highlight some of the gains and difficulties of using interactive applications in public places.
