Per the Chanhassen City Council, Prince‘s Paisley Park studio complex has now manifested into an official museum. The building has already seen a record of 12,000 visitors without any complaints of traffic and convenience. This is a contrast to the rezoning efforts and concern of the city council. They worried about conflicting traffic, parking and pedestrian safety as Paisley Park is estimated to bring in 600,000 people a year.

Al Roker from The Today Show took viewers on a tour and displayed the inner workings of the property. In the control room of studio, notes are still sitting on the consoles. There’s also a “Purple Rain Room” doused in the trademark hue with the 1984 film projected on the walls along with the infamous motorcycle.

“He did plan it to be a museum. Everything is strategically placed,” Prince’s sister Sharon Nelson said to Al Roker.

“I want them to maybe feel like maybe they saw Prince up close, Sometimes when you’re a fan, you get to only to see them from a seat, but this way, you’re almost face-to-face with him.”-Tyka Nelson
