A traveling ABBA exhibit has found a permanent home in the band's native country of Sweden.

The Swedish quartet, who sold nearly 400 million records since the '70s, will be celebrated at "ABBA The Museum," which will be part of a Swedish music hall of fame to be inaugurated in Stockholm next spring, said former band member Bjoern Ulvaeus Wednesday.

The museum will feature some of the band's glitzy stage costumes, instruments and other mementos that were displayed in the ABBAWORLD exhibition that toured Europe and Australia in 2009-2011.

Ulvaeus said he hoped all four former ABBA members would attend the opening, but ruled out any chance of a stage comeback: "We are the only group of that status that has never been reunited. I think that is cool."
