During the month of August, the Estey Organ Museum will be open two days: Sunday Aug. 16 and Saturday Aug. 29 from 2-3:30pm. Please be aware of the following restrictions:
On July 3 the Bennington Museum will reopen, extending its (re)Sounding exhibit through the Fall. (re)Sounding is a multi-media show which brings vintage instruments in the collection back to life in new compositions. Featured is a 1940’s era Estey Field Organ, on loan from the Estey Organ Museum.
Following the recommendations of the CDC and the State of Vermont, the Estey Organ Museum will remain closed until further notice to ensure the health and safety of our volunteers and visitors. Please check our website for the latest information on the museum’s opening.
“Vox Jubilante – Victorian Sounds on Estey Organs” contains a selection of Victorian secular and sacred songs performed on Estey reed and pipe organs. The CD is available from our online store.

In memory of Clemens Kalischer, EOM has remounted with updated captions the Summer 2007 exhibit of photographs of organ pipe-making at the Estey factory. The photos, taken by Mr. Kalischer in the late 1950s, give viewers a rare look at some of the methods and tools used in the production of pipe organs.
