Following Prince's untimely death, his estate Paisley Park is set to be immortalized. The icon passed away in his 50,000 square foot Minneapolis home, which is now slated to become a museum in the style of Graceland.

"We will turn Paisley Park into a museum in Prince's memory," Prince's brother-in-law Maurice Phillips said to The Sun. "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."

Apparently the plans for his estate were created before his passing, as confirmed by former fiancee Sheila E.

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," she told Entertainment Tonight. "[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.…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."
