Kurt Cobain’s Personal Items On Display In This Part Of Ireland


Personal belongings of Nirvana’s frontman, the late Kurt Cobain, are being exhibited in Newbridge, Co. Kildare.

The Museum of Style is displaying Cobain’s clothes, awards, sunglasses, drawings and runners.

It will also display the only car he is known to have owned – a powder blue 1964 Dodger Dart.

Cobain’s mother and sister as well as his daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, attended the opening of the exhibition, entitled ‘Growing Up Kurt Cobain’ to celebrate his Irish heritage.

Cobain believed he originally hailed from Cork but his ancestors came from Carrickmore in Tyrone. They emigrated in 1875.

Speaking to RTÉ news, Frances Bean Cobain said: “I am so thrilled to participate and support my family as they honour their brother and son at The Museum of Style Icons in Ireland. I have always been the most intimately informed of who my father was by my grandmother and aunts.

“I am so ecstatic that their view of who Kurt was gets to be celebrated with Nirvana fans the world over.”

Tickets are still on sale for tomorrow where you will be able to meet the Cobain family.
