This Video Is as Close as You’ll Get to the Inside of Grace Kelly’s House

When Albert paid $755,000 for his mother’s home in 2016, rumors pegged it as a future museum. That won’t be the case, however, as the property at 3901 Henry Avenue will remain closed to the public, according to multiple reports.

    This Video Is as Close as You'll Get to the Inside of Grace Kelly's House
    The now-restored colonial in East Falls where the Hollywood icon grew up will not be open to the public. When Prince Albert II of Monaco first purchased the childhood home of his famous mother, Philly's own Hollywood icon Grace Kelly, he knew that he was in for a major project.
