It’s official, Prince’s Paisley park is now a Museum.
Monday it was unanimously voted to rezone the home and studio so it can stay open for public tours. Visitors will see Prince’s studio and mementos in the 65,000 square foot facility. Tickets are on sale now for tour dates through December, with visits resuming October 28th.
Tours for 2017 are expected to go on sale next month.
And get this ,the same people who run Elvis’s “Graceland” will be managing the Museum for the Prince Estate as well. They say many of the rooms in Paisley Park have been preserved just as Prince left them before he passed away in April. There are hand written notes he left behind while he worked on a yet-to-be released jazz album.
His awards, outfits, instruments, artwork, and motorbikes all on display. The guided tours will include an extensive tour of the main floor where the recording and mixing studios were as well as tours of his video editing suite, rehearsal rooms, private music club and personal soundstage/concert hall where he used to host private events and shows.
The Museum is expected to bring in 600,000 people each year.
