After a lot of back-and-forth about whether or not Prince’s Paisley Park was going to be sold off with some of his other properties, it was finally announced that the private estate and music complex would not be sold, and would in fact, be turned into a museum. And now Paisley Park officially has an opening date—Oct. 6.

The trust company overseeing Prince’s estate made the announcement Wednesday (Aug. 24)—the same company that runs Elvis Presley’s Graceland will manage it. Millions of devoted Prince fans will get to tour the 65,000-square-foot complex in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen.

“Opening Paisley Park is something that Prince always wanted to do and was actively working on,” Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, said in a statement. “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.”

Tours will include studios where Prince recorded as well as the soundstage where he rehearsed for tours and hosted exclusive private concerts. Also, there will be artifacts from his personal archives featured in the tour, “including iconic concert wardrobe, awards, musical instruments, artwork, rare music and video recordings, concert memorabilia, automobiles and motorcycles.”

Paisley Park is scheduled to open for tours on Oct. 6, 2016. Tickets go on sale online only on Friday at 2 p.m. CDT. Standard tickets will cost $38.50, but VIP tours will be offered for small groups priced at $100 or more. Tours will last about 70 minutes, starting every 10 minutes, and each group is expected to include 25-30 guests. Graceland officials expect 1,500 to 2,000 guests on peak days. No walk-up sales will be allowed.
