The home of the legendary Prince is in talks of becoming a museum.

Similar to Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley, Prince’s estate (named Paisley Park) is rumored to be in talks of being turned into a tourist attraction. Located in his home state of Minnesota, the iconic home studio of the artist was known for it’s elaborate design and decoration, in addition to being the space in which the Purple One created and recorded hundreds (if not thousands) of songs.

A Judge recently granted permission to the estate of Prince to begin to seek counsel on how to go about organize public tours, and also how to maintain the grounds.

Turning the home into a tourist attraction may solve the tax that is currently mounting on the home, as money wasn’t set aside to cover those expenses due to Prince’s untimely death.


While the rest of his estate is still up in the air, due to the lack of will and multiple heirs, it seems that one thing they’re agreeing on is turning the home into a museum to help alleviate the financial costs associated with working the affairs out.
