The reed organ museum at Woodville is a gem. Not only is it packed with the most amazing organs, the owners have a story about them all. The visit was most fascinating, and it was a privilege to play some of them.

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.
