One of Seattle's most beloved and celebrated musicians will be remembered in Ireland beginning this July.


The Museum of Style Icons has been working closely with Kurt Cobain's family to bring his legacy to life with an exhibit of his personal belongings. 


From his car to his clothing to his art, his family has worked to transport many special items to Ireland, where the Cobain family's ancestry dates back to the late 1800s.


These never-before showcased artefacts will be on display at 'Growing Up Kurt Cobain', which opens July 19th. Past exhibits have included The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Prince.

This morning saw the launch of "Prince, An Extraordinary Collection of Property from the Life & Career of Prince" at Newbridge Silverware's Museum of Style Icons. The exhibition is open to the public from Friday, 16th March until Thursday, 10th May 2018. Tickets are €7 and can be booked online at or in-store at the Newbridge Silverware Visitor Centre. #prince #museumofstyleicons #newbridgesilverware #exhibition #touristattraction #thingstodoinireland
