Guitars – The museum

Why is a small town such as Umeå having a Guitar Museum?

The answer is simple: 2 twin brothers, Samuel and Michael Åhdén from Northern Sweden started their interest in guitars as young boys. As they got older, they started collecting and now they have about 300 guitars and bases. Their collection includes a 1960 Gibson Les Paul Standard, a 1963 Fender Stratocaster, a 1958 Gibson Flying V, and many more unique pieces. All of this is on display at the museum. There are temporary exhibitions and in the same building is a music store, a vintage record store and a restaurant.

Every day you can join in for free guided tours. What more do you need to spend a rainy (or sunny) day learning about and feeling the vibes of music history?
