Stockholm Gets Abba Museum

Swedish pop sensation Abba is to get its own museum, which will open shortly at Djurgården in Stockholm.

Apart from piles of mothballed spangles and silver platform boots, the museum is mainly a high-end, interactive affair.

As well as costumes and exhibits, there are specially constructed sets representing key Abba moments, and visitors can pose with virtual band members, wear virtual costumes, remix tracks, and re-access their entire experience on their computers later.

Former Abba member Björn Ulvaeus, who’s now 68, told The Observer that he got involved in the museum to ensure its quality, and views it as “a museum of a pop phenomenon, interesting to anyone who is interested in music.”

The museum will be part of the soon-to-open  Swedish Music Hall of Fame.
