Ian Curtis’ House To Be Made Into Museum

Joy Division Frontman's House to Be Memorialized by Entrepreneur and Fan

A Joy Division fan has purchased the house where Ian Curtis lived and ultimately took his own life. The purchase was made by a 48-year-old entrepreneur and musician named Hadar Goldman, who plans to turn the home into a museum to honour the legacy of Curtis and his band Joy Division.

In an interview with NME, Goldman said “Joy Division left a musical legacy which has influenced many of today’s bands…This is not just about history and the past…The Joy Division legacy deserves to be taken into the 21st century, to raise awareness into one of the most seminal bands in the history of contemporary music.

We’ll keep you posted as the museum plans become clear.
