Some new artwork was installed just last year to commemorate what would have been Kurt’s 50th birthday. The museum was part of the 96-year-old Aberdeen Armory Building. There was a huge fire at the Aberdeen Museum of History in Aberdeen, Washington, this past weekend. Smoke and water damage is extensive. Fans came from all over the world to see the Nirvana exhibit. Among the irreplaceable things lost was an exhibit dedicated to Kurt Cobain and Nirvana. The three-alarm fire began around 9 am on Saturday, June 9. Aberdeen, of course, is the hometown of both Kurt and the band.
