EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 They are undoubtedly Sweden's best known musical export and now ABBA are memorialized back home. The ABBA Museum is getting ready to open its doors to the public. Exhibitions feature costumes worn by the singers as well as instruments and sing-along holograms. Band member Bjorn Ulvaeus has been part of the team behind the museum. SOUNDBITE: ABBA member Bjorn Ulvaeus, saying (English): "You know it's quite weird in a way to build a museum over yourself. It might come naturally to some people but it doesn't to me and I had to overcome that because I realised I had to get involved to make this exhibition in Stockholm something that I could be very proud of." ABBA shot to fame after winning the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest with their hit "Waterloo". They went on to become Sweden's most successful pop group having sold nearly 370 million records. But don't expect this super group to reunite any time soon. SOUNDBITE: ABBA member Bjorn Ulvaeus, saying (English): "We split up in the beginning of 1982 I think so it's quite a lot of years now since that time and as you all know we've never reunited and so I take the opportunity now to say that we are not going to either." But that won't keep people away from the exhibits. Twenty four hours before its opening, fans are already lining up outside the museum.
