The city previously granted temporary permits for tours on the 65,000-square-foot property. Monday’s 5-0 council vote allows Paisley Park to remain open indefinitely, reports Billboard.

Tours will resume on Thursday (Oct. 28) and the official website has announced tickets for tours through December. Tickets for 2017 will go on sale in November and the museum expects 60,000 visitors a year.

Visitors to Paisley Park can see artifacts from Prince’s personal archives including concert outfits, awards, musical instruments, artwork, rare music, video recordings and motorcycles. Tours will also give visitors a glimpse into the recording and mixing studios where the singer worked on some of his biggest hit songs.

The museum includes Prince’s video editing suites and rehearsal rooms, a soundstage and concert hall where Prince rehearsed for concert tours and held exclusive, private events and concerts as well as the singer’s private NPG Music Club.
