Prince's Paisley Park Estate has been officially turned into a museum.
The 65,000 square foot complex will be open for tours by the public from this Friday (28th October) through to December 2016, with guided walks including access to Prince’s recording and mixing studios, alongside looks at his video editing suite, rehearsal rooms, private NPG Music Club and personal concert hall.
The museum is being managed by Graceland Holdings — who also run Elvis Presley’s former home of Graceland in Memphis — with the museum also set to house handwritten notes from the late artist’s yet-to-be-released jazz album, plus awards, outfits, instruments, artworks and several motorbikes.
If that wasn't enough bang for your buck, visitors will also get the chance to peep Prince's funeral urn that features iridescent crystals chosen by Tyka (Prince's nephew), plus a replica of Prince's iconic purple Yamaha Piano. Little creepy? Perhaps. An essential trip for die-hard Prince fans? Absolutely!
Paisley Park will be open for tours Thursday through Sunday beginning this week. Tickets are priced at $38.50 for a standard tour and $100 for a VIP tour. Visit the Paisley Park Tours site for more information.
