Would you Abba and Eve it: museum for pop band to open in Sweden
- ABBA »
A museum dedicated to Swedish pop sensations or yesteryear Abba is due to open in Stockholm in 2008.
The museum, the brainchild of one Ulf Westman and his wife Ewa, will display all manner of Abba-releated stuff, from handwritten lyrics to outfits to instruments to hair and skin samples. Well, maybe not hair and skin samples.
Westman was inspired following a visit to Liverpool's museum dedicated to everything Beatles-y. Stockholm's mayor, Kristina Axen Olin, has commented:
"We are convinced that this is important both for Stockholm citizens and for marketing the city."
The band members themselves, though, required a little persuasion; a statement from them now reads, "It is nice someone feels compelled to take on our musical history." Blunt, that...
Oh God, imagine a museum dedicated to Blunt...
