Prince’s web history collated for fans in online museum

Late musician Prince has been given a dedicated online memorial in the form of a 'museum' collating two decades worth of web activity on one site.

The Prince Online Museum will allow fans to trawl through all past iterations of the artist’s website using a reverse chronological timeline, complete with links to active Prince sites, descriptions, screen captures and video tours of websites long since pulled.

Curated by Sam Jennings, former webmaster of Prince’s NPG Music Club, the digital mausoleum corals 12 Prince websites and digital projects, just over half the total sites launched by the artist over the course of his career.

Speaking to Billboard Jennings remarked: “The Museum was built by the people who worked directly with Prince on these projects. We are the originators, we are the experts. It is a labor of love, no money has been exchanged. There will be no downloads sold and no membership fees required."

The time-traveling compilation opens a decade to the day following the closure of NPG, an early pioneer in the digital distribution of music, videos and other fan content.
