The home in which Nirvana legend Kurt Cobain grew up has officially been declared a Washington state landmark. 

The late rocker's Washington state residence was approved by the Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation to be turned into an exhibit.

Spanning over 1,500-square-foot, the home where Cobain grew up will give fans a chance to see the home as it was left when the singer lived there.

The property's current owner, Lee Bacon spoke to Rolling Stone about his plans of recreating the home and bringing it back to its prime vintage state.

“Our goal is to make the house a tribute project to Kurt’s early life and career, with museum detail. The next chapter is how to make that happen,” said Bacon.

Bacon and wife Danielle bought the house from the singer’s family in 2019 for $225,000. They are now also letting his sister, Kim Cobain, have an input in the exhibit.
