After Prince died at age 57 in April, fans grieved, sent sales of his music soaring, and paid tribute to him in unusual (albeit sweet) ways. Six months later, they’ll be able to remember him in his $10 million Minnesota home, which he used to record more than 30 albums.

Tours of Paisley Park in Chanhassen, Minn., will start tours on October 3, and tour tickets go on sale starting Friday at 3 PM ET.

According to a business plan filed locally, tickets will cost $38.50 and that tours will last just over an hour. If you’ve ever toured Graceland, Elvis’ home in Tennessee, then you might expect Prince’s home tour to be similar—the company responsible for operating Graceland tours, Graceland Holdings, also has a hand in managing the Painsley Park tours.

CNNMoney estimates about 1,500 to 2,000 guests would tour Prince’s home a day during peak season. More than 30 years after Graceland opened, the estate and international tourist attraction reached its 20-millionth visitor mark.

Despite the comparisons to Graceland sure to come, Prince dreaded the comparisons to Elvis’ homestay. In a 1990 TIME article, an aide said, “[Prince] doesn’t want anybody, ‘to feel like they’ve walked into Graceland” when dropping by Paisley Park.”
