UPDATE: 06 October 2012 – please see confirmation of ABBA The Museum opening in Stockholm
A museum dedicated to former Swedish pop group 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.
