When Prince’s Paisley Park estate was about to open to the public on October 6, the Chanhassen City Council decided to table a zoning request that would classify the late singer’s home and studios as a museum. According to Pitchfork, it had a “temporary permit for certain days” to give tours. Today, it finally became official: The city council voted unanimously to make Paisley Park a museum. Prince’s remains are also on display at Paisley Park, and on October 8, Al Roker visited the estate turned museum for a segment on Today. It turns out that Prince left detailed guidelines for converting the studios into a museum. Public tours will begin again this Friday, and tickets are on sale for tours through December, so start getting in line now.
