The legacy of Nirvana is deeply rooted in Seattle and the surrounding areas of Washington. At the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle, they’ve held an ongoing exhibit on the band, called “Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses.” Here we’ll take a look at some of those items on display, as well as a couple locations related to the band.

To the left is a flyer for a casting call to be in the video, with a record release party flyer for “Nevermind” on the right.

The gold acoustic guitar on the left was played by Krist Novoselic at the MTV Unplugged concert in New York City, November 18, 1993. The Buck Owens American acoustic guitar on the right, owned by Novoselic, was played by Pat Smear with Nirvana on the “In Utero” tour, as well as the MTV Unplugged performance. Between them is a hat worn by Cobain in the early 1990s.

Kurt Cobain lived with his wife Courtney Love at this home, located in Denny-Blaine neighborhood of Seattle. Cobain committed suicide in the home sometime around April 5, 1994 in the greenhouse, which sat separate from the main house at the back of the property. Love had the greenhouse demolished after Cobain’s death.

Minor portions of the home can be seen from the front gate, as well as the park beside it, but you can’t really get a full view.

Right next to the property is Viretta Park, where this bench stands in memorial to Cobain and Nirvana, with fans writing messages on it. There’s no parking available in front of the home or Viretta Park. The nearest available parking is over at Denny Blaine Park (200 Lake Washington Blvd E, Seattle, WA 98112).
