BERTRAND GUAY/AFP/Getty ImagesThe once-private estate owned by Prince, Paisley Park, in Chanhassen, Minnesota, will become open to the public beginning October 6. Last week, news that the estate would turn into a museum surfaced, and it’s now been confirmed by both Prince’s surviving family and the trust company overseeing his estate, Bremer Trust.
“Opening Paisley Park is something that Prince always wanted to do and was actively working on,” says Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson.
“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 doors to this incredible place,” she adds.
Visitors of the Paisley Park museum will be escorted through the estate in guided tours, which will showcase the iconic musician’s rehearsal rooms, concert hall, personal archives and more.
“The new Paisley Park museum will offer fans a unique experience, an exhibition like no other, as Prince would have wanted it,” said Prince’s siblings in an official statement.
“Most important, the museum will display Prince’s genius, honor his legacy, and carry forward his strong sense of family and community.”
Tickets to visit the Paisley Park Museum will go on sale August 26 at 2 p.m. CT, and tours will begin on October 6. For more information, you can visit www.officialpaisleypark.com.
