Prince's handwritten notes still sit out in the control room of Studio A at Paisley Park, where he recorded some of his greatest hits and was working on a jazz album before he died. The room is filled with his keyboards and guitars, and his iconic symbol graces the control panel.
Those are some of the highlights visitors to Paisley Park will see when the 65,000-square-foot studio complex, where Prince died of an accidental painkiller overdose in April, opens for the first public tours Thursday, NBC's Today"show reported from the museum Wednesday.
It will open under a temporary permit Thursday - and only two other dates for which tickets had already been sold - instead of daily as originally planned, after city council members in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen delayed action on rezoning because of concerns about public safety and traffic. It's unclear when the museum will be allowed to begin full-scale tour operations, but the council said it would vote on the issue again "on or before" Dec. 20.
