You do not have to be interested in guitars to find this factory tour interesting. They have a museum attached and also a shop to buy trinkets. The rebuild guitars here, too. They were working on a guitar for a famous person they would not divulge. Worth the trip. I know we will go back again another time.

We were a group of 9 traveling in an RV with 3 guitar players in our group. It was amazing to be able to try multiple guitars. The tour was extremely informative and showcased Martin's craft. Amazing!!!!

My husband said I hit it out of the park on this adventure. My husband, son and I visited on a Friday. We arrived around 11:00 and were greeted by a very friendly tour guide. They were a little busy so were told we could get in on the 12:30 tour of the factory. It was just enough time to... More

This is wonderful tour and museum. The museum is a hall of fame for guitars and guitar players. The free factory tour is extremely interesting, even if you are not a musician. Our tour guide, Jenny, was great. The tour takes about 45 minutes. There is also a very nice gift shop!

We did the tour today after having done this tour possibly 12 years ago or longer. Art tour guide was Jenny and she was really good! She said her dad also worked in the factory. As other writers have stated it doesn't matter if you're into guitars or not it's a really interesting factory as it's been here since 1833.... More

Worth the trip to Nazareth, PA. The tour was interesting and informative even if you are not a guitar player. Don't miss spending time in the museum as well. The one hour tour and museum are free.

My partner and I drove to here from central Canada specifically just to see this factory, we ended up making an entire Pennsylvania road trip out of it. I recommend anyone who is ever in the area to stop in and see. My partner loves guitars and owns a few Martin's, so for him the tour was great to see... More

My brother and I took this tour today. I've lived in the Lehigh Valley for 12 years and I can't believe this is my first time here - it's a treasure. The museum and gift shop is great. They even have guitars for you to play. The tour through the factory was a behind-the-scenes treasure. You get all sorts of... More

The Martin Guitar factory tour is a one hour, guide led tour throughout the factory that is both informative and interesting. Unlike other "factory tours" I have been on, this tour takes you onto the floor to observe the process up close. The pride that these employees take into producing one of the finest musical instruments made is evident. The... More

We took our 13 year old grandson on this free one-hour tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history and manufacturing process. We toured the actual factory, with simulations mixed into the tour. In the lobby and museum area are guitars available for the public to play. There is also a gift shop, but no guitars are sold...
