Abba museum in Stockholm
The legendary pop group Abba is about to take its place in the Swedish Music Hall of Fame at Djurgården in Stockholm. Plans for an interactive Abba museum in Stockholm were being presented in early October. A permanent exhibition with items from the group’s career will be on display at the museum, which is being built on the site where the restaurant Lindgården once stood. Björn Ulvaeus from Abba participated in the press conference where the museum concept was revealed. The members of Abba will contribute instruments, clothes and other paraphernalia from their heyday, according to the developers. In 2006, private entrepreneurs had plans to open an Abba museum on the Stadsgårdskajen in Stockholm, however those plans had to be abandoned due to high costs. A year or so later, Gröna Lund’s owner decided to open a museum near the famous amusement park, but nothing came of that either. Now, six years after the original plans, it finally looks like a museum will open some time in 2013.
