Beautiful peek in to history

Great peek in to history. Especially enjoyed seeing the tomb of the forgotten soldier display which I do not remember seeing in my past trips here 8+ years ago.

Although the web site said the museum was open, it had actually closed for the season two days ago. But we were not discouraged because there were outdoor exhibits to see. We looked at massive blocks of Vermont marble, marble carvings and came away with small souvenirs of our visit. We must come back next year!

This museum is off the beaten track but worth the visit. This former marble factory has a great display and history of marble that's been used to create buildings, statues and many other things. The Hall of Presidents Exhibit is worth it.

The first thing to say is, I feel, that you should not be put off by the slightly unmaintained appearance of the large former marble works building in which the Museum and Gift Shop are housed. The displays of marble items and the recounting of the history of marble in Vermont are first class. Don't fail to commence your visit... More

Beautiful but sad story about how the marble industry, once so robust, is a fraction of the size it once was. This is not the most exciting museum but its a nice stop if you are willing to go slow and read exhibits and look at photos. I was particularly fascinated with the exhibit about the creation of the Tomb... More

We fell in love w/the marble sidewalks of Manchester Vermont and decided we had to learn more about its history. The Marble Museum was the place to go! Before you even get to the first floor of the museum, you walk up two staircases bookended with - wait for this - marble hand bannisters that were both silky and substantial... More

I would recommend this to anyone that is even close to the area. It is truly great place to visit and learn about so many things you use everyday that contain marble and how that so much of our nations capital is tied to this very stone. The tour is worth every cent of what it costs and it is... More

I had not been to the Vermont Marble Museum in many years. Got invited to an Event there. I had forgotten how interesting and educational the Museum is. Part of history that most folks don't know about. Is a little off the tourist route, but well worth the time it takes to go see it.

Interesting to see how marble is quarried and the variety of colors and how it can be made into a variety of useful items.

Admission is like $9 for adults and doesn't include any view of the quarry or actual production. Take the stairs / elevator up to 2nd floor where all the exhibits are. Some rooms of marble presidential castings and moderately interesting text and photo displays of the production process. A room of text and photos about the Tomb of Unknown Soldier... More
