This is definitely worth your time if you are in the area. You can learn a lot about marble as well as some American history here plus see a real triceritops skeleton! Note:there is almost no cell service here, so plan accordingly.

I live locally and visited this (2nd time) because of a flower show being held here at the museum. The blend of artwork and history of the marble industry in Vermont is very informative, interesting and visually beautiful. Proctor is a pretty cool town and if you have a bit of extra time, it is worth taking time to see... More

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

A large museum with a comprehensive review of the history, geology and technology of marble mining in Vermont. Start with the video on the Vermont Marble company, then tour the many rooms. 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.
