Nirvana Fans: Make Kurt’s House A Museum

A group of Nirvana fans have launched a campaign to transform Kurt Cobain’s childhood home into a museum. Supporters hope to raise $700,000 to purchase and convert the singer’s Washington bungalow, which was recently listed for sale. The project is led by journalist Jaime Dunkle, who told the Broward/Palm Beach New Times that she has been listening to Nirvana since she was “a kid, almost a baby.” Although the crowdfunding campaign has only attracted about $135 in donations during its first 17 days, “[I’m] confident it’s only a matter of time before people start donating,” Dunkle said. Those who donate now will be eligible for prizes including museum memberships and “a pair of tickets to the sold-out Die Antwoord show in Portland.”
