The nineteen instruments on display in the Lewison Gallery spotlight 19th-century American reed organs, pianos, and the choralcelo—an electromechanical keyboard instrument invented by Melvin L. Severy and George B. Sinclair just before 1900—as well as a contemporary Hammond electric organ.
Two ornate, American reed organs by Packard (Fort Wayne, Indiana, ca. 1885-1900) and Cornish (Washington, New Jersey, ca. 1890) can be seen near the gallery's entrance. The NMM's model D-152 electric organ by the Hammond Organ Company, Chicago, (1962) is located nearby.
