The Kurt Cobain Exhibit in his hometown Aberdeen, Washington was destroyed by a fire.
As reported by Loudwire, the fire occurred this past weekend, destroying the Aberdeen Museum of History including the exhibit dedicated to Nirvana. What caused the fire is yet to be determined.
The alarm call following the fire arrived at 9:26am on June 9. As the fire happened on a Saturday meaning the building was unoccupied, fortunately nobody was hurt.
The museum curator told King 5 News:
"People have come from around the world to see what we had on Nirvana. [...] There's more to Aberdeen than just Kurt Cobain. This fire is history, so it will be in the record books. And we're going to rebuild and move on, and keep the history preserved. That's my job."
