At long last, the pop music group that put Sweden on the map will have its own museum on Stockholm’s Djurgarden Island. ABBA The Museum is scheduled to open on May 7, 2013. The new museum is expected to lure thousands of tourist a year and will feature holographic images of the group, their music, and interactive exhibits. ABBA’s hits include Dancing Queen, Waterloo, and my favorite, Fernando. (BTW: I did hear the drums.)

For those of you too young to remember, ABBA defined 1970’s music. At the time, ABBA was considered uncool and dismissed as frivolity. But over time, ABBA’s music has gained respect and it continues to be played.
