The Estey Organ Museum is open 2 to 4 PM on Saturday and Sundays, mid-May through mid-October. We suggest allowing at least 30 minutes for your visit.
The Engine House Gallery is teeming with Estey memorabilia and instruments representing the hundred-year history of organ-making in Brattleboro.
Ours is a hands-on museum. We encourage you to bring your favorite music and “perform” on our reed and pipe organs.
Admission is free to museum members. Non-members are requested to donate $5. Please note that since our exhibit space is small, groups larger than 10 persons must be staggered.
During open season, contact the Museum by email at least 2 weeks in advance to arrange visits outside regular hours. The Museum has sole discretion in granting such requests, subject to volunteer availability. We will make every effort to accommodate reasonable requests — giving special consideration to those engaged in activities within our mission — but we cannot guarantee availability. Space is limited, so groups larger than 10 must stagger visits. The fee for admission outside of regular hours is $5, with children admitted free. Your additional donations are greatly appreciated.
The Estey Organ Museum is located in the center of the Estey Organ Company factory complex at 108 Birge Street in Brattleboro, Vermont. Parking and entrance are in the back. Please park in the marked spots; if you need a shaded spot for a short time, speak with the docent on duty.
