ABBA Museum Stockholm plans approved. May open in 2011.

According to website Earth Times, Magnus Danielsson, president of Touring Exhibitions has given an interview to Swedish media outlet Dagens Nyheter suggesting plans to locate the museum in Stockholm for at least five years are taking shape.

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.

  1. That’ll be good. I will unfortunately not be able to see the exhibition in Melbourne, so I can start to save my pennies for this one :o)

    I hope they include the ‘memories’ notes that have appeared (and are still to appear) in the touring exhibition. It’s a lovely personal touch, and it would be wonderful to see all of the individual special memories.

    Cheers.

  4. Hi ‘Devin’, I’m afraid not.

    It’s looking like the quote “We expect to get a building permit this autumn and aim to open next year (2011),” from Magnus Danielsson, head of the company that is organising a touring exhibition of ABBA memorabilia, may turn out to be too optimistic.
