We are open Tuesday through Saturday 10:00-5:00 just like it says here; UNLESS there is a private event going on, where there are too many tables and chairs out for the public to negotiate safely. Sorry for the inconvenience.

This is a definite "Must-See" when you are in Aberdeen....especially for Kurt Cobain fans. They offer a walking tour that highlights places from his past.

Great for Nirvana fans. Several items on display related to Kurt Cobain. We enjoyed the other displays within the museum as well. Admission was free, although you can make a donation if you wish. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly.

Great place to check out the history of Aberdeen. The displays are interesting and worth a visit. There is a wonderful stained glass window I loved and I like that the place is housed in an old national guard armory building.
