Prince's home is set to become a museum

2016-04-25 22:00

Los Angeles - Prince's Paisley Park estate will become a museum.

The Purple Rain hitmaker - who died at the age of 57 at Minnesota compound on Thursday - is set to have his home turned into a lasting memorial for his fans to remember the music legend, according to his grieving family.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper about plans to commemorate the star, Prince's brother-in-law Maurice Phillips, 52, said: "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."

And it seems turning the compound into a museum was exactly what Prince wanted as his collaborator and former lover Sheila E revealed he had already begun work on a preservation project before he died.

Sheila told Entertainment Tonight: "We're hoping to make Paisley what [Prince wanted] it to be. [He] was working on it being a museum.

"He's been gathering memorabilia and stuff from all the tours, like my drums and his motorcycle.

"There's a hallway of his awards and things, which he really didn't care about too much, but he displayed it for the fans because he knows that they would want to see it.

"There's pictures of him all down the halls, some you've seen before and some never [seen]... There's a mural on the wall with his hands out and on one side is all the people he was influenced by and the other side is all of us who have played with him... It's beautiful."
