ABBA Museum will Open in Stockholm Sweden
A museum dedicated to Swedish pop group ABBA is to open next year in Stockholm.
The museum, backed by former member Bjorn Ulvaeus, will feature some of the band’s glitzy stage costumes, instruments and other mementos. Visitors will also be able to sing along to Abba songs alongside life-size holograms of the group.
Ulvaeus said he hoped all four former ABBA members would attend the opening, set for April or May, but ruled out any chance of a stage comeback. ABBA’s music lives on, with millions of albums sold each year, and through the highly popular stage and film musical “Mamma Mia!”. The city of Stockholm has long considered building a museum for Sweden’s most successful pop group but previous plans fell through. This time, the building is already under construction near a theme park on Djurgarden, one of the Swedish capital’s many islands.
