Mighty Wurlitzer Theater Organ

The Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organs were the most famous musical instrument built by Wurlitzer. On February 9, 1928, out of North Tonawanda, New York, the Wurlitzer Company manufactured and shipped the Opus #1836, a “3 manual special,” to the Stanley Theater of Jersey City, New Jersey. This Mighty Wurlitzer Organ spent two decades entertaining customers at the Roaring 20’s Pizza Parlor on 28th Street in Grand Rapids, before it was moved to its current location at the Grand Rapids Public Museum.


The Mighty Wurlitzer Organ Concert Series is back for 2019! This year the series will have  3 organists throughout to highlight the broad uses of this special instrument.  

Tickets are $8 for Museum member adults, $4 for Museum member children, $10 for non-member adults and $5 for non-member children.
