Organ grinders coming to NY Museum of Transportation
The New York Museum of Transportation, 6393 E. River Road, Rush, will bring back the century-old entertainment tradition of organ grinders on Sept. 12.
Organ grinders were itinerant showmen who traveled through cities and towns, often with a pet monkey or other animal. Visitors to the museum will enjoy music from a variety of vintage wind instruments played by several organ grinders.
Trolley rides are included in admission and run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors ages 65 and older, and $6 for ages 3-12. Visit nymtmuseum.org to register.
