It’s been six months since the pop icon’s death, and Prince’s home, Paisley Park, is finally open for business, as a museum and shrine to the musician.

Fans hoping to pay homage to The Purple One can do so at Prince’s version of Graceland, Paisley Park, the state-of-the-art music complex is where TAFKAP recorded nearly 30 albums, including best-sellers Sign o’ the Times, Parade and Diamonds and Pearls.

Due to the musician’s notoriously private life, few ever got a glimpse into the $10-million facility, which contains recording and mixing studios, rehearsal rooms, a massive soundstage and concert hall and Prince’s private office—containing three beds (king, round, day) and, of course, a giant mirror over the king bed.

Now that the Chanhassen City Council voted to rezone the 64,000-foot home in Chanhassen, which is on the outskirts of Minneapolis, to allow it to become a permanent museum, fans will be able to see the home where Prince lived and breathed his…artistry.

Tours of Paisley Park start at $38.50.
