ABBA dances into London

ABBA, the spangly Swedish quartet that gave the world "Waterloo" and "Dancing Queen," has sold 400 million records since its 1970s heyday and spawned the hugely successful stage and film musical "Mamma Mia!"

And now there's ABBAWORLD -- a new museum-cum-theme park in London with enough music, mementos and memory-lane appeal to satisfy even the most fervent ABBA fan.

ABBAWORLD's Swedish organizers promise the exhibition -- which opens to the public today -- will be "a place for total interaction" with the band. It tells the group's story in 25 rooms spread over 30,000 square feet.
