This tour and museum is not just for guitar players. I enjoyed seeing how the guitars were made. We went all through the facility to learn step by step how guitars are made and even saw some custom guitars being manufactured. The museum is equally as interesting. It's a must see FREE tour!

My husband is a guitar player and a huge fan of Martin Guitars. You can imagine his delight when we happened upon this while driving from Philly to the Poconos. It's located in a quaint little area and is a neat looking building, inside and out. We signed up for a tour, even with our 2-year old. The tour is... More

My wife, parents and I all visited the Martin Guitar factory while my wife and I visited them this past week. While I do not play guitar, the museum here was packed with enough history to satisfy any music fan....Rock n' Roll, Country, Folk,........ There were Martin Guitars from the 1800's all the way up to present....Plus they were shooting... More

After a great deal of research I picked up a used Martin this summer, in part because I recently moved to PA and live only half an hour from the factory. Today I went to visit the factory, and all I can say is 'wow'. I hope some of the factory workers read this and realize how much more I... More

The beauty and nostalgia of this building and its guitars is immeasurable. Martin is a world renown guitar company and after being there to experience the true authenticity of this company you will see why they are Martin Guitar.

When traveling to the Lehigh Valley, make time to tour the Martin Guitar factory in Nazareth. You'll spend an hour in a small group (mine was 12), touring the factory where over 180 separate types of guitars are made. You'll be led by a knowledgeable tour guide, while wearing an audio set and earphones so that you can hear him/her... More

This place is about more than guitars. Approaching the address you would never guess that there was a factory located in the area. It is situated in a largely residential neighborhood. Our experience with Martin (including owning one) was great. I contacted guest relations and left a message by phone when I decided that we wanted to take the "Behind... More

A true factory tour. Free of charge. Small groups, each person with audio set and earphones, follow guide on a long informative walk through all sections of the facility, right past the artisans on their benches and seeing thousands of guitars in various states of manufacture (it turns out there are a LOT of processes involved in making a guitar)....

I had been wanting to visit this factory for several years. We finally went, and I was not disappointed. We had a young, sweet tour guide who seemed to know everyone in the factory, greeting people by name. The information we learned, and what we saw, all was fascinating.

Really enjoyed both the museum and factory tour. The museum is great after seeing the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland since so many of the musicians play on Martin guitars which may be the best in the industry. How they get built is fascinating.
