The house and recording studio complex, where the pop star died in April, will open to the public after Chanhassen City Council in Minnesota approved plans to change its status.

Paisley Park opened to the public for three days earlier this month as part of a temporary agreement with the city.

The museum’s website said tours would begin again on Friday and bookings are being taken until December. Tour dates for 2017 are expected to go on sale next month.

The museum, which displays Prince’s guitars, the Purple Rain motorcycle and his ashes in a decorative urn, is expected to attract 600,000 people a year.
