ABBA Museum Gets Green Light In Stockholm

Sweden's capital Stockholm gets its own museum for the legendary pop quartet Abba - but only temporary.

As the newspaper 'Svenska Dagbladet' reported that the urban 'Schönheitsrat' has given the green light for the construction of a huge, long black tent with tin roof in the picturesque district of Djurgården.
"We expect the opening of the ABBA museum in the next year," said Magnus Danielsson, chief organizer of the exhibition 'Abbaworld'. "We expect half a million visitors per year in the plant next to the amusement park Gröna Lund".
Earlier plans for a museum with original costumes, instruments, and the first recording studio with "Waterloo" had shattered.
Instead, 'Abbaworld' is now at first presented as a traveling exhibition. Since June, the show has been in Melbourne Australia.
The ex-Abba members Benny Andersson (63), Björn Ulvaeus (65), Agnetha Faltskog (60) and Anni-Frid Lyngstad (64) have given the project modeled after the Beatles Museum in Liverpool their blessing. The official approval for the tent construction is initially valid for five years and may be renewed for the same period.
