What We Do

Empire State Theatre & Musical Instrument Museum Activities

Over a million people visit the Great New York State Fair each year, many of whom enjoy the musical instrument museum and the Wurlitzer pipe organ programs.

Musical Entertainment

John Walker entertains on the giant Wurlitzer. Several New York State Theatre Organ Societies provide several talented artists during the annual State Fair.

ESTMIM House Organist, Wendell Rotter receives a standing ovation after his State Fair concert. Several free programs are presented on the Wurlitzer organ each day throughout the 12 days of the New York State Fair.

Our 100+ year old player piano is one of the most popular “foot’s on” attractions in the building every year!

Our program intermissions & receptions are held in our musical instrument museum.
