Prince's Paisley Park studio is officially a museum

Prince’s famous house and recording studio complex will be open to the public as a museum after Chanhassen City Council in Minnesota approves plans.

The Paisley Park complex was opened up to the public for three days at the beginning of October 2016.

Around 12,000 people have already visited the site, resulting in a number of complaints from residents in the area.

Once permanently open, Paisley Park is expected to attract around 600,000 visitors per year. It will display Prince’s collection of guitars, the motorcycle featured in his film Purple Rain, and the singer’s ashes in a decorative urn.

"I'm happy for the council, I'm happy for the community, I'm happy for the operator," commented Mayor Denny Laufenburger, saying the museum would be a big benefit for the community.

Paisley Park will be open for tours this week, with tickets priced at $38.50 for a standard tour and $100 for a VIP tour.

Prince died of a fatal drug overdose in April 2016.
