Those looking for a glimpse into Prince’s private world are in luck—his family and special administrator for his estate are opening up the doors to his Chanhassen home Paisley Park for public tours on Oct. 6, 2016.

Millions of fans will be able to tour the 65,000-square-foot home, which will include a look into the Minnesota legend’s recording studio, rehearsal rooms, video editing suites, private NPG Music Club and concert hall where he rehearsed for tours and concert events.

The tour will also include memorabilia from Prince’s life such as special awards, instruments, artwork and clothing.

"The new Paisley Park museum will offer fans a unique experience, an exhibition like no other, as Prince would have wanted it," according to the official statement by Prince's siblings. "Most important, the museum will display Prince's genius, honor his legacy, and carry forward his strong sense of family and community."

Prince will also be remembered in a family tribute concert on Oct. 31, 2016 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Additional information on concert ticket sales will be forthcoming.

Tickets for the tour went on sale on Aug. 26 at 2 p.m.

"Opening Paisley Park is something that Prince always wanted to do and was actively working on," says Tyka Nelson, Prince's sister. "Only a few hundred people have had the rare opportunity to tour the estate during his lifetime. Now, fans from around the world will be able to experience Prince's world for the first time as we open the doors to this incredible place."

The 2018 Meeting Planners Symposium held at The Graduate Minneapolis and McNamara Alumni Center was all about unique venues and experiences. From a Scrabble team challenge to a mini hackathon, meeting with no walls and a surprise session on a coach bus, this learning opportunity was anything but ordinary. Teams worked together to solve a complex problem and pitch their idea for $500 cash. Through beautiful chaos, attendees discovered fresh, unconventional approaches to do their jobs better.
