ABBA the Museum delayed!

11 09 2008

Some sad but important  news today from ABBA the Museum:

To those who have purchased tickets for ABBA the Museum! The renovation of the 100 year old building where ABBA the Museum was meant to open is more extensive and will take much longer than expected.
This means that ABBA the Museum will not be able to open in Stockholm on June 4, 2009. This is very sad news for everyone involved, and especially for anyone who has purchased tickets.

The Press release:
On June 4, 2009, ABBA the Museum was scheduled to open in Stockholm. But it has become clear that the renovation of the 100-year-old Stora Tullhuset – the location of the museum – will take longer than expected and the project there is more complicated than what was predicted earlier. This means that it’s not possible to open ABBA the Museum in Stockholm in 2009.
– It’s better to make this decision at an early stage, even though it’s a sad message. Everyone involved has high expectations, but now we are faced with the facts that we won’t be able to open June 4 on the intended premises. Therefore we have to take appropriate action and review our plans, and open ourselves to new ideas. Because there is no doubt that there will be an ABBA museum, although it may take a while longer than expected, says Ulf Westman, founder of ABBA the Museum.
Despite this sad news, the initiators have a bright outlook on the future. The interest in the museum is incredibly large the world over and new investors are entering the project, which will secure its financial future. There is no doubt that there will be an ABBA museum, although it may take a while longer than expected. Those who have purchased tickets may use their right to receive a refund.

It may not provide very much consolation, but we will naturally give you a refund for the tickets and the entire opening packages. More information on how this will be done will be sent to you within a few weeks.
Please await this information.There will definitely be an ABBA museum, but at this stage we don’t know where or when. All news will be communicated through our website
Ulf Westman, founder of ABBA the Museum.
