Listen up Prince fans, the artist’s 65,000-square foot Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minnesota is being turned into a museum.

“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, according to etonline.com and BuzzFeed. “Only a few hundred people 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.”

According to some planning documents, tours will be 70 minutes long. The maximum amount a guest could stay is two hours. The tour also has 24/7 security.

“The new Paisley Park museum will offer fans a unique experience, an exhibition like no other, as Prince would have wanted it,” according to a statement by Prince’s siblings found on usatoday.com. “Most important, the museum will display Prince’s genius, honor his legacy, and carry forward his strong sense of family and community.”

During the tour, guests will be able to see the recording and mixing studios, the video editing suites, the rehearsal room and the massive sound stage Prince used for private concerts and rehearsals.

Guests will also be able to see Prince artifacts, concert memorabilia and the automobiles and motorcycles that Prince owned.

Fans took to Twitter to express thoughts.

“Dreams do come true!” said Kelly Pruitt, a Twitter user.

“Tickets go on sale tomorrow on paisleypark official. Whos all in??? im EXCITED [sic],” said Cyndi Figueroa, another Twitter user.

The tours begin Oct. 6. Tickets went on sale in late August.
