New Holland Band Museum Bringing Music to Life Since 1829
The New Holland Band Museum houses one of the most impressive displays of band memorabilia in the nation. Founded in 1980 by Arthur Futer (renowned historian, Indian archeologist and noted Percussionist with The New Holland Band), the museum houses hundreds of musical instruments from 1620 to present day. Photographs from the 1800s as well as original uniforms, music, and equipment complete the museum's collection.
The museum chronicles the band's growth and development dating back to 1829. Each historical era is displayed around the room, along with other relevent events throughout each time period. One of the museum's most prized possessions is the last baton used by Mr. Sousa the night he died in March 1932.
The museum occasionally has visitors from many prestigious musical organizations, including personnel from The Philadelphia Orchestra, US Marine Band, US Air Force Band and others. In fact, part of the museum collection is currently on loan to the US Air Force Herald Trumpet Museum in Arlington, Virginia.
