Green light for ABBA museum site in Stockholm

28 08 2010

Stockholm – A museum dedicated to  ABBA may become reality next year after a Stockholm city arts council approved the envisaged museum site, reports said Friday.

“We expect to get a building permit this autumn and aim to open next year,” Magnus Danielsson, head of the company that is organising a touring exhibition of ABBA memorabilia, told the Dagens Nyheter daily.

The building will be shaped like a long tent and given a five-year permit that can be extended a further five years, the report said.

The museum will be on the Stockholm waterfront and can be accessed also by ferry.

The touring exhibition – currently in Melbourne, Australia – features music, original costumes, instruments, photos and other memorabilia.

Former ABBA members Anni-Frid Reuss (formerly Lyngstad), Benny Andersson, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Agnetha Faltskog have provided many items.
