Birgit Nilsson’s home becomes a museum

A new and exciting attraction is opening in southern Sweden – the Birgit Nilsson Museum.

Just as Birgit Nilsson once metamorphosed from farmgirl to celebrated artist, her childhood home is being transformed from an ordinary farm into a center where memories of her glamourous career are brought to life. During her long international career Birgit frequently returned to her childhood home, which still contains personal mementos of her past.

The residence and the stables, which have been converted into a café, will open for visitors on May 23, 2010.
