ABBA Museum Stockholm plans approved. May open in 2011.

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.

  • 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.

  • I will be in Stockholm at the end of July – will the museum be open then?

  • 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.
