Boardwalk Hall Pipe Organ Tours
Jan 7 - Jun 17, 2014
1st & 3rd Tues of Each Month
Price: Tour Donation is $20 per person
Built between 1929 and 1932 by the Midmer-Losh Organ Company of Merrick, Long Island, N.Y., the Boardwalk Hall Pipe Organ was designed by Atlantic County State Senator, and noted organ architect Emerson L. Richards. He specified almost every detail of the instrument, from its physical construction to the actual sound the various stops should make. Get a group together to tour this magnificent machine.
Specialty tours giving an extremely detailed history and guided look behind the scenes of some of the normally closed sections of Boardwalk Hall’s pipe organs are available on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month.
• A $20 donation is requested by the docents for these tours for the benefit of the work of the Historic Organ Restoration Committee (H.O.R.C.)
• The number of visitors that can be accommodated on each tour is limited and places will be allocated on a "first come, first served" basis
• Wheelchair visitors can be accommodated but some parts of the organ chambers and Hall are not fully accessible
• Visitors must check-in at the security desk inside the Hall's main lobby (accessed via the center doors) by 10 A.M.
