FILE - In this April 21, 2016 file photo, people stand outside entertainer Prince's Paisley Park compound in Chanhassen, Minn. Court filings in Prince's estate show that a special administrator, and likely Prince's siblings, are eager to explore the money-making potential of making a tourist attraction out of his Paisley Park home and studio complex.

MINNEAPOLIS — Long before Prince died, he told close friends he wanted to turn his Paisley Park home and studio complex into a museum. Now, the trust company overseeing his estate — likely with the backing of Prince's siblings — is exploring the idea.

Court papers show Bremer Trust is actively looking at opening it up as a money-making tourist attraction some have compared with Elvis Presley's Graceland.

Paisley Park, in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen, already has a large soundstage, two recording studios and the inner sanctum where he lived. So it's already got the basics for operating as a museum, performance space and recording venue.

Since no will has surfaced, the final decision will be up to whomever the courts determine will inherit the estate.
