Prince’s Paisley Park Home Is Officially a Museum
Prince’s Paisley Park home and studio is now officially a museum after a unanimous vote by the Chanhassen City Council in Minnesota, reports Billboard. The vote means the home can stay open as a museum indefinitely.
Tours have been happening on a temporary basis while the city looked into concerns about traffic and safety. All those concerns have seemingly been dealt with as the vote means the museum will start ongoing tours in December of this year.
Most of the rooms inside the property have been preserved just the way Prince left them. In his studio, his outfits, awards, art and instruments are on display along with notes for the jazz album he was working on before he passed away in April.
Visitors to the Paisley Park home can expect a guided tour of the musician’s recording and mixing studios as well as his video-editing suite and concert hall.
“I think the city was very thoughtful in what they did,” said Joel Weinshanker of Graceland Holdings, the company that will be managing the museum. “Prince’s museum is going to outlive us all.
