I've lived in this area for over 40 years, about 30 minutes away from the Martin Guitar plant, and had never taken the tour until my grandchildren visited last week. Three of my grandkids live in town and have been to the factory a few times. Two of the grands were visiting from Maryland, so I thought it would be... More

This is a tour of the actual factory, not a facsimile. You get to watch guitars being made by both machine and by hand. The experience gives you a respect and understanding of the precision, skill, and workmanship it takes to create these beautiful musical instruments. The one hour tour is free and well worth it. For me, the real... More

We visited the factory and had wonderful time there. My son, 20 yrs old, was in a wheelchair and had absolutely no problem on the tour. It is very accessible. He is a Martin guitar owner and playing is his passion so this tour was perfect for him. Our tour guide was fantastic! He was a retired gentleman who worked... More

I don't think they need excellent reviews anymore ;-) Just want to say that the free 50 minutes tour was great and our tour guide Tyler was outstanding. We did it with our -well behaved- 6 and 3 year old kids and both the tour guide and reception staff were super nice. Thank you Tyler, and thank you Martin Guitars!

Best free factory tour ever. Well planned, informational, professionally delivered. I want to go back already. Remember to leave time for the museum too!

I've been to the Martin Guitar Museum and Factory Tour before and still love seeing how these beautiful instruments are made! If you have a love of guitars and music it's well worth the trip!

We're in the area and we stopped in for a tour. Impressive in all regards, especially how nice the employees are. Nice, clean factory. Am not a guitar expert by any means but do enjoy rock and roll and have for decades. Glad we went, will probably never be in the area again. Do not miss it if you have... More

We were four of about fifteen people who toured the Martin factory, had a really interesting time. We had about a half hour wait before our assigned tour, walked through the gift shop and some exhibits in the lobby, saved the museum for after the tour. You are equipped with headsets on the tour because the guide could not otherwise... More

This is a great tour! To think this is free! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and took us through the plant from start to finish. However, you must walk through the museum. It is awesome! There is so much history to this company, the guitars and the area. Well worth the visit. We will return as there was so... More
