This museum was a pleasant surprise. The staff were polite, and the gift shop was well supplied with marble trinkets and other interesting items. Worth a visit.

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

I highly recommend this stop for all ages. There is so much more here than one would expect. We thought we'd spend about 45 minutes, but stayed for an hour and a half.

This museum is, on the one hand, and valuable reflection on a key Vermont industry that has influenced not just the environs, but the country. There's a great exhibit on the use of marble, its importance to national architecture, the Vermont Marble Company, and mining. On the other hand, short shrift is given to its own labor history, or reflection... More

Thank you for your input - beginning 2014, we will be a non-profit, affiliated with the Preservation Trust of Vermont. Going forward, we hope to delve more into the history of the immigrant and local population that worked at the company, document their lives and track their descendants. Almost 1/4 of museum visitors have relatives that worked for the company... More

Nice museum with many displays showing the origin and history of marble in Vermont. Lots of art work with contributions from the sculptor in residence. He'll also demonstrate the steps in carving and finishing artwork. The large display of entire marble rooms and walls was impressive. Lots to buy in the gift shop too. You'll see marble used throughout this... More

There is so much marble in Proctor, Vermont that even the bridge over the creek looks like it belongs in Washington D.C! We enjoyed the displays showing the history of the company, the geology of marble, and significant uses shown for the marble including the tomb of the unknown soldier. An artist-in-residence was working away and took the time to... More

He is a wealth of knowledge, and a talented and acknowledged sculptor - we have been very lucky to have him be a part of the museum. He has a wonderful gallery of his sculptures for sale, and will be happy to... More

The VT Marble Museum has so much history about the marble industry in VT. You can see a movie to start and than tour the building with so many things made of Marble. I think one of the greatest is the Hall of Presidents. They have bust of the Presidents in one of the rooms. You learn how many buildings... More

Very interesting to learn about the Marble industry through movies, pictures, displays and the guides. They have a wonderful room of Presidental sculptures that have fun facts to read about each President. Fun to watch the on site sculptor and see the different types of marble and how it's used. Did you know the excess marble scrap is ground down... More
