Prince’s Paisley Park to Open for Tours in October

New museum ”will offer fans a unique experience, an exhibition like no other, as Prince would have wanted it“

If you never got an invitation from Prince to drop by his pad in Minnesota, you’ll have your chance to pay a visit soon enough.

The late singer’s famous Paisley Park estate will open for public tours in October, Bremer Trust, the special administrator of the musician’s estate, said Wednesday.

According to the late “Purple Rain” musician’s sister, Tyka Nelson, Prince was actually making plans to open the estate up to the public before his death in April at age 57.

“Opening Paisley Park is something that Prince always wanted to do and was actively working on,” Nelson said. “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 the doors to this incredible place.”

In a statement, Prince’s family said that the new museum “will offer fans a unique experience, an exhibition like no other, as Prince would have wanted it.”

“Most important, the museum will display Prince’s genius, honor his legacy, and carry forward his strong sense of family and community,” the family continued. “We are excited to open the doors of Paisley Park and share Prince’s magic with all of his fans.”

Prince died at Paisley Park just days after reportedly being hospitalized for an overdose of the opioid Percocet. The coroner later determined that the musician died from an overdose of the opioid fentanyl.
