Feel That Organ!


What’s the one thing the City Museum (701 North 15th Street; 314-231-2489 or is missing? If you answered, “A 1924 Wurlitzer pipe organ,” you’re fortunately mistaken as of Tuesday, July 31. Formerly of New York City’s Rivoli Theatre, the organ in question (let’s call it the Toasty Rivoli) has been lovingly restored and outfitted with an electronic controller for the continuous musical accompaniment of all your City Museum adventures. (But we would greatly appreciate it if the controls were bypassed for a lengthy session by Ernie Hayes every once in a while.) Check out the gigantic, swinging organ today or any day thereafter; admission is the standard $12, and doors open at 9 a.m.
Starts: July 31. Daily, 2007
