Ireland’s Museum of Style is set to display personal belongings from the late Nirvana singer on July 19th, which will feature items such as the shirt he wore in the “Smells Like Teen Spirit” music video.
According to Reuters, the exhibition will have several items that have never been seen before by the public, ranging from his drawings, clothing, and even his 1965 Dodge Dart. Cobain, who died in 1994, was of Irish ancestry himself, and the exhibit in his honor will be titled, “Growing up Kurt Cobain”.

Originally, Cobain’s ancestors came from Carrickmore, County Tyrone, but emigrated to the United States in 1875.
Cobain’s relatives such as his mother, Wendy O’Connor, and his daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, will be at the opening in Newbridge, Co. Kildare. His family feels as though it’s significant that his exhibit will be in Ireland since it’s a homecoming of sorts due to his Irish heritage.

“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,” Cobain’s daughter told Reuters.
This museum, in addition to soon acquiring Cobain memorabilia, also has outfits worn by stars like Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn and has previously held exhibitions about Michael Jackson and Prince.
