Now, the tours will allow visitors to get an inside look at the 65,000-square-foot compound where Prince lived and worked, and Prince's sister Tyka Nelson shared that this was something the musician had always aspired to.
“Opening Paisley Park is something that Prince always wanted to do and was actively working on," Tyka Nelson said in the press release issued by Bremer Trust, the special administrator of Prince’s still-unresolved estate.
"Only a few hundred people have had the rare opportunity to tour the estate during his lifetime," Nelson added. "Now fans from around the world will be able to experience Prince's world for the first time, as we open the doors to this incredible place."
Paisley Park will open for tours Oct. 6, Bremer Trust announced Wednesday. Graceland Holdings, which runs Elvis Presley’s Graceland, will manage it, and tickets are set to go on sale Friday at 2 p.m. CT.
CBS DFW reports that the tour will include stops at Prince's studios and the soundstage where he rehearsed for tours and hosted private concerts, as well as thousands of artifacts from his personal archives, “including iconic concert wardrobe, awards, musical instruments, artwork, rare music and video recordings, concert memorabilia, automobiles and motorcycles.”
"The new Paisley Park museum will offer fans a unique experience, an exhibition like no other, as Prince would have wanted it," reads the official statement by Prince's siblings.
"Most important, the museum will display Prince's genius, honor his legacy, and carry forward his strong sense of family and community."
