Permission has been granted to turn Prince's Paisley Park home into a museum

Members of the public can get a closer glimpse at the late star's life.

Prince fans will be able to learn more about the star's life than ever before as permission has officially been granted to turn his Paisley Park home into a museum.

Yesterday (October 24) the Chanhassen City Council in Minnesota unanimously cleared the way for the late icon's home and recording studios to accept tours of the general public. While this has been happening a limited basis for the last few weeks, the new ruling rezones the legendary address so that a special license is no longer required.

October 28 is the first day that fans can enter Paisley Park under the new ruling, although not all quarters will be accessible. The bulding's main floor, editing suites, rehearsal rooms and the NPG Music Club will be available to enter. An urn of Prince's ashes will also be on display.

Each tour costs around £31.50 and lasts just over an hour at 70 minutes long. Dates until mid-December are now available to book.

The news ties in with the announcement of two new Prince releases in the last few days. Prince 4EVER combines 39 classic hits and an unreleased track named Moonbeam Levels, a song originally shelved for Prince's 1999 project. The retrospective is out on November 25.

A deluxe edition of Purple Rain will also be put out, hitting physical and digital shelves in early 2017. This special 2-disc collection features the original album in a remastered fashion and a brand new 2nd album of unreleased material.
