Rumor Round-Up: Is Paisley Park Going To Be A Museum?
I think this is such a cool idea! I can’t wait to see it in October. USA Today is reporting that Paisley Park, Prince‘s famed creative hideaway, is being turned into a museum. They explain it will be, “opened for daily public tours in October, the administrator of the icon’s estate announced Wednesday.”
Prince’s sister Tyka spearheaded the movement because it was something he always wanted. She said in a statement,
“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. The new Paisley Park 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.”
Tickets are going to be a hot commodity! USA Today reports, “tickets are set to go on sale Friday at 2 p.m. CT for tours starting Oct. 6 at OfficialPaisleyPark.com. No ticket price is available.”
