The Vermont marble museum has so much history to offer the visitor and we only saw a small sign we followed after turning up at a castle we wanted to visit that we found closed. The museum is housed in the old marble factory in Proctor VT so as you pull in to the free factory car park and enter... More

We had fully intended to go through the museum, but this was our last stop at the end of the day and we were worn out. We passed on the museum, but did visit the gift shop. It was quite nice and offered lots of different items made from marble. The walk from the parking lot to the building is... More

I guess I was hoping to see some quarry mining but that wasn't the case. None-the-less, this was a good visit. We learned about how marble forms and what kinds of marble come from Vermont as well as other places around the world. The displays were well done and full of information. Especially interesting was the story about the Tomb... More

It is interesting for children and adults, particularly if you are considering marble countertops for your new or remodeled kitchen and bath. Vermont marble found its way into... More

This was a very unexpected surprise. Two excellent videos followed by numerous display rooms with lots of history regarding marble production. In addition there is an amazing exhibit room devoted to geology called Earth Alive.

Having enjoyed several days in western Vermont, I know know that the state's heritage is maple syrup, mountains, and marble. This museum was our education in the third "m" in that list. The site itself is important, one the Proctor marble works, a major facility for finishing and selling the products of the state's marble quarries. To get there, you... More

Loved seeing the "Hall of Presidents" which had been sculpted in white marble on plaques and the other sculptures that you can see throughout the museum. Wonderful gift shop with some lovely items: jewelry,rolling pins, salt and pepper shakers, coasters,trivets all made in various colors of marble. If you need marble for rolling out your pastry, they had large pieces... More
