Fantastic concerts

This is a super visit either for their concerts on Saturday nights and their Sunday afternoon tea-tour sessions playing all their various organs/music machines.

I took my granddaughter here you the organ museum in St Albans. We had a lovely afternoon, hearing all about the various organs in their large collection,finishing with some of the organs being played to us by a very accomplished organist. Tea, coffee, chocolates & biscuits are available. Altogether an interesting & informative afternoon. Well worth a visit. G

A wonderful selection of organs with someone to tell us all about them, where they were made & where they came from. We also had someone playing a selection of songs. Cups of tea, , wrapped cakes, biscuits & chocolate are all available. A really interesting Sunday afternoon. Well worth visiting. H

The whole place is quaint, old fashioned and quintessentially British. Alton Towers it certainly is not.

A splendid chance to see historic theatre organs and musical boxes - all lovingly restored and maintained by a group of enthusiasts. We enjoyed an entertaining Sunday afternoon listening to a variety of these wonderful machines plus a live performance on a Wurlitzer by a chap who had travelled from Suffolk. There are also monthly concerts by top professionals on... More

well worth a trip to see this excellent collection of organs, fairground, dance and theater organs as well as music boxes and ephemeral bit and bobs. Look locally for times of opening. All this and a cup of tea and a biscuit. great afternoon.

Wow ! How often is something better than anticipated ? This venue is a great nostalgia night out. For us oldies it is a wonderful experience of those by gone days when part of the nights entertainment at the cinema was a break between films for the 15/20 minute interval of listening to the Grand Organs of the day.

Museum contains collection of fairground organs, music boxes, and other unusual instruments, a Wurlitzer Theatre Organ and a Ruff Theatre Organ. All the instruments were demonstrated by a group of volunteers. You even get a cup of tea included in the admission price. Opening times limited. Check on their website.

Quirky and whimsical, very British. Once you find the St Albans Organ Museum, you'll want to go back again and again. Demonstrations by keen volunteers and musicians, a free cup of tea and a biscuit, and best of all, the sound track from West-Side Story boomed out on a mighty automated Wurlitzer organ at a volume that must have shaken...
