I arrived a little after 9am. I signed up for the first tour which was to start at 11am. Since I had time to kill, I visited the museum. It's small, but filled with great information about the history of the Martin Guitar Company as well as many stunning instruments. I also visited the 1833 shop where I bought some... More

Planned a visit to the Martin factory for the tour and museum as part of a road trip for my husband's birthday. We were not disappointed in the least. The staff was welcoming, and helpful. We arrived at 11:10 on a Thursday and had an hour wait for our tour. We spent our time while waiting in the museum. The... More

My wife and I stopped here on our drive up to Boston. We were actually looking for a place to stop for lunch and saw the sign along U.S. 33. Located the factory and were in luck since the free factory tour was just about ready to start. Our tour guide led us on about a one hour tour of... More

A great place to tour if you're into guitars and music. The tour was about 2 hours and you are able to see the guitars being made from start to finish. There are a few you can play some in the lobby where they also sell strings and other items. They have a nice museum to follow their history. Definitely... More

I made a pilgrimage to Nazareth PA on the way to visit my son in NYC. My suggestion is to stay in Nazareth the night before (or some place near) and get to Martin before 9:00. Sign up right away for whatever tour you want. They will call your name over the PA when your turn comes. Meanwhile, there's a... More

This place has a great tour. You will see every step of production, from design to quality control. They have a museum that you can see while waiting for your tour group to start.

Had a fantastic time. Amazing to see the guitars in the making. Diane was a great tour guide. There was so much to see and learn. The museum added that extra special touch of history.

The family-owned Martin Guitar Company has been making guitars, ukeles, mandolins, etc. since 1833 (not a typo). At their headquarters in Nazareth, PA, they offer a free tour of their workshop areas and they also have a really well-organized museum documenting the history of their business, the different types/models of guitars produced over the years, and the artists who have...

I've lived near here for years and never realized they offer a FREE tour and it is very high quality. For anyone interested in music or guitars I really can't recommend it enough!
