The archive contains 12 of Prince’s almost 20 websites, the Prince Online Museum director Sam Jennings stated to Billboard. As Jenning explained, the creation of the site was a “a labor of love, no money has been exchanged.” As for Jennings, he was also the webmaster for Prince’s Webby Award winning NPG Music club website.
The site chronicles Prince’s online journey from the “Prince Interactive” 1994 project to 2013’s 3rdeyegirl. “This Museum is an archive of that work and a reminder of everything he accomplished as an independent artist with the support of his vibrant and dedicated online community,” commented Jennings.
The museum commemorates the strides Prince took with engaging with his fans and audience. Jennings added, “The Museum was built by the people who worked directly with Prince on these projects.” There is no membership fee to access the Prince Online Museum.
