Prince was found dead at Paisley Park last week. Now, the 50,000 square foot estate and studio complex near Minneapolis is set to become a Graceland-style museum dedicated to the iconic artist, Yahoo! News reports. As Prince’s brother-in-law Maurice Phillips told The Sun, “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.”

According to Prince’s longtime collaborator and one-time fiancee Sheila E., the plans were already set in motion before his death. “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,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “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.”
