Meanwhile, Prince’s Paisley Park studio and home has received final approval to permanently operate as a museum.
The Chanhassen City Council signed off on a request yesterday (October 24) after months of deliberation over traffic, pedestrian safety and parking.
Earlier this month, the City Council tabled the request three days before the museum’s planned opening, saying they needed more time to study its potential impact on Chanhassen, with Paisley Park expected to attract 600,000 visitors a year.
After receiving complaints from traveling fans, the Council granted temporary permits that allowed the museum to open for tours on select days, the Star Tribune reports.
“I’m happy for the council, I’m happy for the community, I’m happy for the operator,” said Mayor Denny Laufenburger. “[It’s a] big benefit for the community.”
The museum has already welcomed about 12,000 people and there have been no reported complaints, according to Joel Weinshanker, the managing partner of Graceland Holdings, which is overseeing Paisley Park.
It will be open for tours Thursday through Sunday starting this week.
Tickets are priced at $38.50 for a standard tour and $100 for a VIP tour.
Earlier this month, members of Prince’s family exclusively invited NBC News’ Today programme for a first look around Paisley Park.
