Prince‘s Paisley Park compound in Chanhassen, MN will open its doors to in-person fans and well-wishers next month to mark the fifth anniversary of the musician’s death in 2016.
On Tuesday venue operators announced that the Paisley Park Atrium will open for free visitation on Wednesday, April 21st, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Fans who want to make the trip to the Minneapolis-area compound for the commemorative event will have to make reservations. The venue reportedly has 70 time slots available, where 20 people per slot will be allowed inside for up to 30 minutes. According to reports, Prince’s ashes will also be on display inside the atrium.
A statement on the Paisley Park website reads, “Guests are also welcome to leave flowers, mementos, and other memorial items in front of the Love Symbol statue outside the Paisley Park main entrance. For those unable to visit in person, an online memorial will be available.”
Paisley Park operators also noted in a follow-up announcement that organizers were working to make additional visitation time slots available soon.
The 65,000-square-foot complex which was once Prince’s creative playground and recording studio was renovated into an operating museum in the months following his death on April 21st, 2016.
