The tours are free & even if you don't play it's very enjoyable. It's much more than what you'd expect !
I am in the musical instrument rental business and went to the Martin factory to see how much of American craftsmanship was still alive and well. I was very pleasantly surprised at the detail and time spent giving me a free tour of the factory. At over an hour with a knowledgeable guide who fielded a variety of questions from... More
Excellent tour for all ages. Upon entering you are greeted by staff who will sign you up for the next available tour. Then until your tour group is called, you have time to wander through the museum area or visit the gift shop. The museum has a lot of martin acoustic guitar history from the very beginning of the company.... More
An incredible, hour +, free, guided tour with headsets through the factory floor. Check the website for days and times, and don't naively hope (as I did) to see famous musicians shopping/ordering guitars, though a few do visit from time to time.
Driving past the sign for The Martin Guitar Factory on our way up to Syracuse University over the course of 4 years, we always said we were going to stop there one day. On our last trip to the University (Graduation Weekend) we decided to really do it. It was a little bit confusing once we pulled off the road,... More
The Martin Guitar factory tour is amazing! First of all, it is free! Secondly, it is a real look at American craftsmanship. Much of the process of making a guitar is still done with human hands and human input at Martin Guitars. The tour takes you through the actual factory, not a simulation of the factory. It is fascinating and... More
My husband has been taking guitar lessons for three years. To celebrate a milestone birthday, I contacted the good folks at Martin Guitar to arrange a Behind the Scene Tour. Anyone interested in music,and craftsmanship will thoroughly enjoy this experience. Our tour, which is limited to six guests, was led by a retired plant manager. We had the chance to... More
You don't have to be a guitar player to enjoy a visit to Martin Guitars. Anyone with an appreciation for well made items will also enjoy it. The free tour of the factory takes one through all the steps in crafting a guitar, from start to finish. It is informative and the employees you encounter are pleasant and knowledgeable, eager...

While staying in the Poconos, I made a pilgrimage to the Martin guitar factory. Be sure to arrive early to tour the small but packed museum, and also try out some of the guitars. The free tour took about 1 hour. There is also a tour you pay for that is more in-depth, and I am sorry I did not... More
The museum is fantastic, and the factory tour is even better. Arrive at least an hour before the tour (the first tour our day was at 11:00), sign up and then spend time at least an hour in the museum. Great 19th century history and then fantastic musical information (and guitars and pictures) from the 1940's to today. The factory... More
