The Galpin Society was formed in October 1946 to further research into the history, construction, development and use of musical instruments (the branch of musicology known as organology). Based in the United Kingdom, it is named for pioneer British organologist Francis William Galpin (1858–1945).
The Galpin Society publishes a quarterly newsletter and an annual journal, holds occasional conferences, often in conjunction with the American Musical Instrument Society, and maintains an active website.
