Prince’s Family Is Finally Opening The Doors To The Artist’s Private Life By…
The museum of purple
Very few people ever got a chance to go behind the closed doors of Prince’s massive estate, Paisley Park, in Chanhassen, MN. Because the artist was so private and reserved, it was pretty much off limits to anyone, unless of course you found a golden ticket in your chocolate bar. People who had the chance to visit and tour would share things that only seemed possible in a mythical world. But now that Prince is gone, his family has decided to peel back the doors, and turn the famed estate into a museum dedicated to “The Purple One.” Apparently, this was something that Prince wanted to eventually accomplish all along.
“Opening Paisley Park is something that Prince always wanted to do and was actively working on. 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.”- Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson said.
In the museaum guests will be able to view exclusive items from Prince’s archives including clothes, motorcycles and guitars. They will also get to tour the main floor of the complex, which includes the recording studio, concert hall, soundstage and video editing suites.
Tours will begin October 6th, but tickets for the tours will become available via the Paisley Park website this Friday at 3pm. Click here for the link to the website, and check out this interview with music producer Jimmy Jam, a close friend of Prince who spent many hours at Paisley Park.
