The pipe organs of Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall can now be heard increasingly as part of the entertainment for various shows in either the main arena or the Adrian Phillips Theater.  

Effective Immediately 03/13/2020: Wednesday recitals and Curator’s Tours are canceled indefinitely due to COVID-19.

As those of you who have taken the tour before are aware, it is a very tactile experience. Visitors must hold handrails, come in contact with many surfaces and in some cases even person to person contact. Safety is our top priority, for our staff, volunteers, and visitors. We look forward to resuming tours and recitals when it is safe and appropriate. As always, thank you for your continued support. Stay safe and healthy!

An updated recital schedule can be found at

Free ½ hour recitals and tours of the organ are presented Monday-Friday at 12:00 noon May-September.

In addition a “Curator's Tour” is offered every Wednesday throughout the year beginning at 10AM.  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 a good deal of walking and stair climbing.  An alternate tour path is available for persons with limited mobility.

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. 

Entrance to the building is through the front lobby off the boardwalk.
