Museum in Stockholm to open on May 7 next year
It has been announced that ABBA The Museum will open in Stockholm on 7 May 2013. Tickets for the month of May will be on sale from today. As reported, Björn Ulvaeus told the Swedish and international press in October about plans for a museum, to be a part of a Swedish Music Hall of Fame located in Djurgården, Stockholm.
“We want to be available to everybody, from our very first opening day,” Mattias Hansson managing director of the museum, says. “Since a lot of music lovers and ABBA fans live outside Sweden, we want to offer them a chance to get tickets beforehand in order to guarantee a unique first time visit.”
More information on tickets can be found at www.sj.se/abbathemuseum. A limited number of tickets will also be on sale at the venue. The 5000 sq m building at Djurgårdsvägen 68 includes 2000 sq m of exhibition space, much of which will be dedicated to ABBA The Museum. The museum is counting on 200,000-250,000 Swedish and international visitors during 2013.
