This past week, the Abba Museum opened in Stockholm, Sweden to hundreds of fans ready to relive the unique saga of the native pop group. (Too bad Marcus, a lifelong fan, wasn’t around for the unveiling.) The museum, in collaboration with the Music Hall of Fame, boasts unparalleled memorabilia, a full-service dance floor and the actual studio console with which Abba recorded their signature sound.

The group, who formed in 1972, released 8 chart-topping albums, won the Eurovision Song Contest and extensively toured the world until their break-up in late 1982; a legacy that would spawn countless tributes to the group.

For a mere 195 Krona ($30 USD), a visitor can see the band’s gold plated records, listen in on live streaming piano sessions by Benny Andersson, the 66-year-old composer and former Abba creative and actually sit inside the famed helicopter from the cover of Abba’s third studio album Arrival.
