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.
Some of the museum's most prized possessions are original artifacts from the Sousa Band, including the last baton used by Mr. Sousa the night he died in March 1932.
