A museum dedicated to the late dance music legend Avicii is opening in Stockholm, Sweden in 2021.

According to a press release issued to announce the museum, the Avicii Experience is "an intensively emotional tribute to one of the true icons of modern popular culture."

The Avicii Experience will give visitors a glimpse into one of the most prolific and pioneering minds electronic dance music has ever seen, and unique insights into his "creative process and the many collaborations behind the music." The press release also states that the museum will feature "memorabilia, unseen photos and video, plus published and unpublished music," as well as "previously unreleased material that was the foundation for the posthumous album Tim," which will be made available for the first time. Additionally, fans will be able to hear unpublished, early versions of Avicii's iconic breakthrough single "Levels."

The Avicii Experience is a part of SPACE, a new shared experience concept combining gaming, music, and content creation that is set to open in Stockholm in 2021 at Sergels torg. A portion of revenue from the Avicii Experience will be donated the Tim Bergling Foundation, which advocates for the recognition of suicide as a global health emergency and actively supports organizations that research preventative actions against mental illness, especially in young people.

Dark and powerful, the song is about walking away from someone who doesn't deserve you.

The press release also included a statement from frequent collaborator and fellow dance music pioneer Nile Rodgers. “Avicii has quite rightly been celebrated as one of the greatest DJ’s of all time and as an important artist who made massively successful records but what I will remember the most is that Tim was one of the finest songwriters I ever worked with," said Rodgers. "We could work together for 24 hours a day and his melodic ideas would never stop coming. He was a melodic beast who has not as yet had the recognition he deserves for his extraordinary talent. Tim, I love and miss you my friend!”
