Looks like they moved the urn at Paisley Park

https://www.facebook.com/...cation=ufi

It's worth noting that since my last visit to Paisley Park in early December I saw some positive improvements. They've relocated the urn to an elevated location in the atrium in a special plexiglass alcove that is painted to blend into the cloud-covered wall. It's so much more appropriate and tasteful, in direct line-of-site with Prince's two doves, and it felt right to know he was looking down on us from up there in the clouds, so to speak. I was also glad to see protective rugs (in purple, with the Paisley Park logo) covering the carpets in the lobby and up to the atrium. The merchandise has been moved to the back lobby where the "fence" and Super Bowl performance video is on display. The latter half of the NPG Room now serves as seating for guests who want to sit for a spell or order something from the Paisley Park Kitchen. The former merchandise tent still has the beautiful Prince photos and quotes, so on your way out you can pose for photos. It all flowed so much better than before.

Good to see they're making positive improvements but reading further into the post it sounds like they still need to beef up on knowledgeable staff. Not sure if they're having a hard time finding people or need better recruiters. Hopefully PP management can get that sorted soon.

Any museum or curator changes and improves over time. Paisley Park is sure to be the same. I would imagine even the exhibits and displays will rotate and change over time. With so much Prince left us, it stands to reason that there have to be changes over time.

Yep. I just hope the staffing improves soon. That seems to be the one constant criticism.

Nice progress - and in less than a year.
Perhaps there aren't people applying for tour positions who are more knowledgeable. They ought to be told about The Org giggle

.

It's also possible they don't want "fans" who would be less controlled in their comments and answers to questions. Who from The Org applied and did you get a job?

The salaries may also be low, on the part-time range with few benefits. PP is only open three days a week right now; it may go full-time in the summer tourist season.

We had fun, didn't we?

So we'll be waving up to him now. Maybe that'll soothe some folks better.

Perhaps I'll go now to see. If it does, I'll say so. nod

You certainly proved that Prince, beyond any doubt.

It's funny when things hit you. Again. I just read this thread and my whole body shivered. I've clearly not fully processed the new reality yet.
