Prince’s Paisley Park Home To Become A Graceland-Style Museum, His Family Confirms

Prince’s Paisley Park home is set to become a museum after his sudden death last week.

The mansion near Minneapolis, Minnesota, has become a focus for fans mourning their hero since the Purple Rain singer, below, was found not breathing in the lift at his home.

And the extravagant 50,000sq ft complex, which contains a recording studio and nightclub, is set to become a lasting point of pilgrimage for fans – just like Elvis Presley’s Graceland.

The singer’s brother-in-law Maurice Phillips told The Sun: “We will turn Paisley Park into a museum in Prince’s memory.

“It would be for the fans. He was all about the fans – this would remember his music, which is his legacy.

“Prince was always private but would have wanted his music remembered.”

Loyal fans who gathered outside Paisley Park complex, above, for the singer’s memorial service were yesterday given purple boxes packed with memorabilia.

Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson, who is married to Maurice, told fans: “Thank you for loving my brother.”
