Great museum and gift shop!

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.

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
