Enjoyed this museum. Marble sculptures include the Last Supper, all the Presidents' busts, Dante's Purgatory, examples of Arlington National Cemetery headstones. This is the company that makes Arlington's headstones and made the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in D.C. They have a room dedicated to the making of the Tomb. They have examples of marbles from all over the world.

My wife and I recently visited the marble museum while traveling through Vermont. It was informative, well laid out, and interesting for those of us who are not familiar with rock quarries. The gift shop had some unique items. We purchased a marble cheese cutter that is both functional and beautiful.

We first watched a film that included the making of the "tomb of the unknown soldier". We saw it mined and cut and were amazed how it was done. Saw a bust of the presidents and some little know facts. Its worth you time.

We found this museum purely by accident and ended up spending 2 hours enjoying all the exhibits. The history of the marble industry in Vermont is very interesting. We had a nice talk with the artist in residence and even got to practice chipping away at a practice marble slab.

My sister suggested we go through there this is where she bought her marble. What a history lesson about the mining of marble.... The history in pictures is amazing if you've got time check it out. It's a bit cool inside as fall is here, wear a sweater. The resident sculptor was on site and there were lots of art... More

We were told that this was a must see and they were right! A museum in one of the old factory buildings used for cutting and carving marble.

Besides being a museum that is very educational, there is also a great gift shop where you can find unique wedding gift ideas.

This museum is a must see as it provides education about marble along with beautiful sculptures. The movie in the theater isn't really worth the time to watch though. My favorite hall is the museum was the hall of presidents as it gives awesome facts about the presidents and they are made of marble.

The museum is located in an old marble manufacturing building. Its large and provides many, many examples of marble and the history of The Vermont Marble Company. A lot of interesting facts about marble and how it's used beyond beautiful buildings and counter tops. Who knew it's in vinyl siding and our boxes of cereal!? The list is very, very... More

This is a really interesting place to learn about marble and see lots of different marble products. There's a very nice gift shop. You can travel here by car or plan a stop as part of a bicycle route.
