Prince’s Paisley Park Museum Will Officially Open This Week
After weeks of delays, Prince’s former home and recording studio will officially open to the public as a museum. Earlier this month, Paisley Park’s opening hit a snag when Chanhassen City Council members voted to put a rezoning request on hold over concerns about the museum’s effect on the local community. Those issues have apparently since been resolved, and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports the museum will now be open Thursday through Sunday beginning this week.
So far, about 12,000 people have toured the shrine without issue, and an estimated 600,000 visitors are expected at the museum each year. Among other relics from Prince’s career, the museum will also exhibit the legendary pop star’s elaborate, custom-designed urn, pictures of which you can see here. More details about the tour can be found on the museum’s website.
