Boardwalk Hall Pipe Organ Tour and Recital
Boardwalk Hall houses the largest musical instrument on earth. More powerful than a dozen orchestras, it can both whisper and thunder into the 5.5 million cubic feet of air space in the main arena. A second instrument by W. W. Kimball is also part of the Adrian Phillips Ballroom. Both of these incredible machines were included as part of the original stage equipment for the building.

A Curator's Tour of the pipe organ is offered Wednesdays from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM. This in-depth 2 hour tour leads guests through several sections of the organ which are normally closed to the public and gives an extremely detailed look at the mechanism of the instrument, its history and the current restoration project. This tour does involve an extensive amount of walking and stair climbing. An alternate tour path is available for persons with limited mobility. The tour is followed by a half hour recital from 12:30 PM - 1:00 PM. Starting May 28 recitals will occur weekdays through September 30 from 12:30 PM - 1:00 PM.

All concerts and tours are free and open to the public with no reservations necessary. However, the Curator's Tour has a suggested donation of $10. All proceeds go toward the restoration of the pipe organs and are gladly accepted at each of the concerts.  Please check their Facebook page for cancellation notices before traveling.
