Prince's Paisley Park Officially Granted Museum Status
Published Oct 25, 2016Prince's epic Paisley Park estate has already been immortalized thanks to the singer's custom urn and devoted fans can now take tours through the building itself. Now, it has also officially received designation as a permanent museum.
Prince's Paisley Park home and studio has been offering tours to members of the public since October 6, operating under a temporary permit while traffic and pedestrian safety issues were reviewed. Now, Minnesota city council has voted to rezone the property as a museum, allowing the facility to remain open for the foreseeable future.
Tours will resume on October 28, and tickets are currently available for visits through December. Tickets for 2017 tours are expected to go on sale in mid-November.
As previously reported, the Paisley Park museum grants fans access to Prince's recordings studios, video editing suites, rehearsal space, private club and concert hall. Stage costumes, awards, instruments, art, rare recordings, cars, the Purple Rain motorcycle and even the aforementioned urn are all on display at the Minnesota property.
Prince was found dead of an accidental fentanyl overdose at the Paisley Park complex on April 21.
