Paisley Park has been open as a museum for about 10 months now, and one of the recurring criticisms is that there's not a great deal to it yet, and not enough behind-the-scenes information about the artist known as Prince.
The museum's managers seem to have heard this complaint, and their answer is a new tour they're calling the "Ultimate Experience."
According to a Monday morning press release, the "experience" is an expanded three-hour tour (please resist the urge to sing the "Gilligan's Island" song here), which is significant considering the general-admission version lasts a little over an hour.
This stretch includes "access to all three of Prince’s primary recording studios," a private extended screening of video footage in the singer's editing suite, and a special "playback session" that's meant to give visitors insight into his creative process.
But wait – there's more! Paisley Park says the tour, which is led by a guide, also includes access to "archive items not displayed on the GA and VIP tours, providing a more in-depth museum experience."
Okay, how much?
Now comes that "other" common complaint about Paisley Park.
The Ultimate Experience will set you back $160. Compare that to $100 for the VIP tour, and $38.50 for general admission.
In its review of the museum's grand opening last year, the Chicago Tribune said the tour was "pricey," while a Star Tribune reviewer complained that, aside from a couple of rooms and an up-close look at a recording studio, "there didn’t seem to be much else offered over the $38.50 general-admission ticket."
But in its defense, the Ultimate Experience seems to offer a lot more bang for your buck (or all 160 of them). You get to see a lot of stuff previous visitors haven't, and Paisley Park describes it as "a more immersive way for fans to tour" the home and workplace of a music legend.
And plus, Ultimate Experience guests get a "specially prepared vegetarian meal" at the end of the tour – which is exactly the way the famously vegan Prince would have wanted it.
