We enjoyed a reserved group manufacturing tour with the engineering manager. It is amazing to see so many people at work making standard and custom guitars. The tour allows for close up access and build an appreciation for the work going in each guitar. The welcome area and small museum are attractive. All staff was friendly, entertaining and it is...

My husband plays guitar and a member of a couple of bands. For Father 's day this year, I thought of taking him to Martin's Guitar museum and factory. I asked him to take off work because the factory is only open during weekdays. We arrived past 9am, put our names in right away, then stickers were given to us... More

I like visiting the Martin Guitar Factory to see how acoustic guitars are made. One luthier uses a machine that cuts the sound hole in each guitar. There is also a museum that has a collection of guitars. I also played a few tunes on one of the guitars that are available.

I have always wanted to take this tour. I've been playing guitar for over ten years so it just made sense to me to get an in depth look at how it is done. From the time I parked my vehicle I was directly opposite from the main entrance.. The old factory and logo remains a part of the new... More

We had a tour guide giving her first tour. She was terrific. The plant is so clean and all the workers show such skill. Would recommend this tour for anyone.

we arrived shortly after 1pm - the last scheduled tour is 2:30; due to our party size, we were not able to get on a tour until 1:45. Even though we found the tour to be quite informative, it was difficult to follow because it did not follow the order the guitars were made, but rather the set up of... More

Seeing the whole process of how a guitar is built and the detail that goes into it is really impressive. You should take the time to see it.

I have been to this factory 4 times for the tour, most recently on May 6, 2015. The company has grown since my last visit, probably 12 years ago, and the attraction is larger. You can play the low end AND the high end guitars right there, you can tour the Martin Museum and spend as much time as you'd... More

Add a star if you like, play, or own a guitar, especially a Martin guitar. Subtract a star if you have no real interest in guitars. There is a great museum showing the history of the family-owned company, there is a gift shop where you can buy shirts and coffee mugs - but not guitars, and there is a wall... More
