Avicii museum to open in Stockholm

By | Published on Wednesday 10 June 2020


The Tim Bergling Foundation has announced plans to open a museum in tribute to the late producer – better known as Avicii. The interactive Avicii Experience is set to open in his home city of Stockholm next year.

Announcing the project, the charity set up in Bergling’s name by his family said that the museum will be “an immersive interactive exhibition” that will “follow Tim’s journey from a reclusive music nerd to a celebrated superstar, from his boyhood room where it all started to the Los Angeles studio where the biggest hits were created”.

On display will be various pieces of memorabilia, as well as photos, videos and music – including a number of previously unreleased tracks.

“Avicii left behind a legacy of transforming modern dance music and pioneering a revolution of the EDM scene that spread across multiple genres, leading him to become one of the most influential producers, performers and songwriters of our time,” says Per Sundin, CEO of Pophouse Entertainment Group, the company that will run the Avicii Experience, and which also set up a similar Abba museum.

The new exhibition will be housed in Space – a “digital culture centre” developed by Pophouse, which focuses on gaming and content creation as well as music. A portion of the revenues from the Avicii Experience will be donated to the Tim Bergling Foundation, and the charity will seemingly be involved in the wider Space project too, as part of its mental health outreach remit.

In a statement, Bergling’s father Klas says: “At Space we will carry out activities focusing on youth, with the aim to have an open and inclusive dialogue in regards to mental health”.
