Oamaru's Historic Quarter




The New Zealand Organ Museum Trust oversees the purchase, loan, display, repair and leasing of instruments deemed worthy of preservation and conservation. The collection already includes a wide range of reed and pipe organs. Our advisory service is available to help churches and other owners on any questions relating to the history and maintenance of their instruments.

 Sole remaining stopknob from the 1870 pipe organ built by the Seager brothers for Sunnyside Lunatic Asylum.


Among the more notable gifts to the Museum is the house organ of Bernard Bicknell of Christchurch, an instrument built over a 75-year period.  It is being installed in the Oamaru workshop of the Manuafctory, and will be available for practising.
