STOCKHOLM (AFP) - Sweden's iconic disco group ABBA has no plan for a reunion, but a new Stockholm museum opening on Tuesday will offer the second-best opportunity to experience the foursome on stage.

"In the museum you can see us together again. That I think is the closest you could ever get," band member Bjoern Ulvaeus, a youthful-looking 68-year-old, joked in front of a group of reporters on Monday.

ABBA The Museum expects to draw a quarter million visitors before the end of the year, showing that nearly 40 years after they broke onto the world music scene, the Scandinavian superstars have lost none of their lustre.

Ulvaeus stressed that the band, which split in 1983, will never perform together again even though they all remain friends.
