Prince’s Paisley Park Will Be Opened to the Public as a Museum
Paisley Park, the sprawling Minneapolis home and studio in which the late Prince live, will open its doors to the public on October 6.
The music icon, who died in April of an overdose of fentanyl, had been working on opening up his home to fans.
“Opening Paisley Park is something that Prince always wanted to do and was actively working on,” Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, said in the statement (via People). “Only a few hundred people have had the rare opportunity to tour the estate during his lifetime. Now, fans from around the world will be able to experience Prince’s world for the first time as we open the doors to this incredible place.”
The 70-minute tour includes seeing where Prince recorded and mixed his hit songs along with the soundstage he used to rehearse for concerts and stage private events. Fans will also get to see many cool artifacts from his personal archives – costumes, awards, musical instruments, artwork, rare music and video recordings, concert memorabilia, automobiles and motorcycles.
People reports Graceland Holdings, the company that runs Elvis Presley’s Graceland, will manage the 65,000 square-foot complex.
Tickets go on sale online only on Friday. No walk-ins allowed.
