A fire has destroyed the Aberdeen Museum of History, which was home to an entire wing dedicated to Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.

"People have come from around the world to see what we had on Nirvana," museum curator Dave Morris told King 5 News. "Then we when they saw the rest of the history they were impressed. 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."

New artwork was installed in 2017 to commemorate what would have been Kurt Cobain's 50th birthday. Local woman Jennifer Lundberg's mother painted a mural for the museum. "It was Kurt Cobain and it really means a lot because he's from here. It's just beautiful art," Lundberg told Komo News.
