Umeå brothers Samuel and Michael Åhdén possess one of the world’s largest privately owned collections of guitars and now the whole world has a chance to see it. You can visit the experience-based exhibition of electric guitars, basses, amps and music accessories at Umeå Guitar Museum. Do not miss the guided tours!

The museum houses about 500 exhibits altogether. Alongside the exhibition the museum arranges lectures, temporary exhibitions and presentations of new developments. World stars will also visit the museum during the year and hold ‘clinics’ – open guitar lessons.

Don´t miss the guided tour, which features stories about customs officers and priests who design guitars and other strange phenoma. Guided tours Monday-Saturdy (12.00, 15.00, 17.00) - all year round. The tour is included in the entrance fee.

Through a donation from an anonymous music lover a new exhibition has opened up called MUSIC LOVERS PLACE, that celebrates icons like David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Patti Smith, Madonna and many, many more.
