IKEA fans, brace yourselves. The Swedish brand has announced it will launch its first-ever museum to document the company's 73-year history as a home décor powerhouse, Fast Company reports. The debut space will house a treasure trove of 20,000 items and information about the brand's history, including the story behind the best-selling Billy bookcase. The catch? Unlike the store, nothing in the museum will be for sale. Oh, and it's in Sweden. If you can't justify a flight to Älmhult for the June 30 launch, take a peek at some of the retro, iconic products that will be on display. Cue nostalgia.
