Prince’s Paisley Park to be Converted into a Museum
It appears that Prince had no will and no plans for his estate after his death, so his sister and brother-in-law are in charge for now, and it sounds like they want Paisley Park open to the public.
According to Yahoo, the singer’s brother-in-law Maurice Phillips says that “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.”
Just like Elvis and his Graceland estate, Paisley Park could be a great spot for fans to gather and remember his music and keep his legacy alive for generations to come.
My hope is that they put the time, money and effort into making more than a cheap tourist trap that peddles Prince t-shirts and bobbleheads for the sake of the mighty $$.
No other details were given about when the 50,000-foot complex will open as a museum.
