Around 100 of our over 150 old pedal/reed organs are on display and can be played to your heart's content, or just look and learn, or listen and sing, etc. We live in the building so are usually at home to show you around, but if you want to be sure, ring or e-mail ahead of time for an appointment. Will be a never-to-be-forgotten experience.

Enjoyed playing some of the antique reed organs in the museum, So many to choose from. The place was bursting at the seams with old reed organs from a bygone era, some as old as 1890.
