Preserving fairground organs for your pleasure

The Museum is situated in an unmarked warehouse on Amersham’s industrial estate.

The collection includes instruments by Gavioli, Marenghi, Hooghuys, Wilhelm Bruder Söhne and Gebr.Weber.

The organs, operated via punched cards, would have travelled the country with fairs in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

When you enter you’ll find lots of seats in the middle of the hall, and an array of exquisite organs performing on the sides.

Many of these have ingenious painted automatons that move with the music.

You can visit only on open days, which take place on the first Sunday of the month.

The entrance is free, however, a donation is appreciated, or you can buy a hot drink and a slice of cake.
