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.
A “Behind the Scenes” tour is offered every Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. 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 1/2 hour concert.
All tours are free and open to the public and no reservations are necessary. Entrance to the building is through the front lobby off the boardwalk.
