© brainflakes

Though the hefty admission price may be your budget’s Waterloo, Stockholm has a new attraction for fans of one of its major cultural exports. ABBA is getting its own museum. We have the Eurovision Song Contest to thank/blame for the worldwide popularity of this 70s pop group, and now you can revel in the blue eyeshadow, gold records, disco dancing, and daft costumes that could only be a product of the 1970s.

The museum is connected to the Swedish Music Hall of Fame, and every room features different music. You might even get to speak to a member of ABBA if they happen to call up the special hotline installed in the “Ring, Ring” room, designed to let them speak directly to fans.
