I learned about Rock of Ages through the Moon Guide for Vermont. My rule of thumb is if Moon Guide thinks a place is quirky, it is going to be awesome! Rock of Ages did not disappoint. Our arrival time allowed us to view the film prior to the tour. I recommend this approach because the film prepares you for your quarry tour by providing information on the process the guide describes and the machinery that you see in the quarry. (I visited on a Saturday, so no one was working in the quarry or the carving studio -- maybe if you go on a weekday the film is unnecessary). Our guide was a former high school teacher who spent summers working in the quarry - he was very informative and could answer any question. In addition to the mind-blowing quarry, other highlights are the granite bowling alley, and the free granite samples. The museum and gift shop are a bit lame, but that's not what I came to see. I recommend Rock of Ages to everyone - young, old, children, and teenagers. I'm returning on a weekday with my family so I can view all the action!
