A new and funky museum will be opening in Stockholm, Sweden this spring. Specifically designed to cater to the fan population of ABBA, this museum will be the world’s first official one of its kind. Originally scheduled to open in 2009 and halted because of construction complications, the official opening of the museum will be on the 7th of May 2013. It states on their website that they “want to be available to everybody, from [their] very first opening day. Since [many] music lovers and ABBA fans live outside of Sweden, [they] want to offer a chance to get tickets beforehand order to guarantee a unique first time visit.” The plans include a studio where you can record your own ABBA music and the opportunity to see ABBA perform “live” at Wembley Stadium.
Showcasing what is still Sweden’s most famous and successful band of all time, the ABBA museum will be home to the entire ABBA collection and certainly to a very ecstatic fan base. For information on tickets and about the museum, see http://abbathemuseum.com/.
