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 our exhibit space is small. Tour groups larger than 10 persons will need to be staggered. Thank you for your cooperation!
During the season, arrangements can be made for visiting the Estey Organ Museum during non-scheduled hours by contacting the museum by email. Please allow at least one week’s notice for special requests.
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.
