The Saab Museum stays in Trollhättan! The municipality, the Wallenberg Foundation and the Saab AB together have saved the museum. For 28 millions of crowns, about 3 million € remains the Museum of Sweden, the city and of course the fans. That's good news, and the visit to the museum in summer is scheduled!
The Trollhättan commune contributed 14 millions, the armaments company Saab AB about 8 millions, the rest came from the Marcus and Amalia Wallenberg Foundation. Thus, the Wallenbergs, one of the most important families in Sweden, stand for the past, which is closely linked to the Saab automobile industry. About the Investor AB For a long time the family determined the fate of Saab. Nice that individuals and companies jump in where politics fails!
Paul Akerlund, the mayor of the municipality, was visibly relieved today. Because the museum is also an important attraction for tourism in the region.
The museum is preserved and it stays completely together. At least on this point we have a happy ending!
