For those who like to learn the history of Marble and Vermont's place in it, this is a great place to visit. The building is one of the original production buildings of Vermont Marble. The place to begin is with a short video of how marble is quarried, where it comes from and some of our national monuments made from... More

The Vermont marble museum was very informative. Learned the difference between marble and granite (you will need to google it or go to find out:) Lots of great history and a very impressive gallery of marble from all over the world. It is set up like many museums with different galleries and rooms of information and displays. Also an informative... More

The museum was very educational. The movie of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was easier to understand than seeing it first hand in Arlington memorial cemetery . Geology came alive with its easy graphics. Marble will never be the same to me. The small areas defined marble , from its excavation to the finished product. The gift shop is... More

While this museum is set up with gallery areas like other museums it retains the atmosphere of the original industrial feel of the building it's in. This enhances the ambiance of the museum. The museum does an outstanding job of displaying the various uses (artistic and functional) of marble as well as the history of marble mining.

The art and sculptures were nice, but we didn't need repeating walls of marble samples at each end. There is a marble sculptor on site much of the time - you can watch him work or try your hand on a piece of marble. (Yes, his work is for sale.)

I wasn't sure we'd enjoy a museum about rocks, but it was very interesting. Lots of marble samples, historic photos, and marble carvings. We ended up learning about how the marble was formed and even more about how the immigrant population came to Vermont. The sculptor wasn't there when we visited on a Sunday afternoon, but we saw some of... More
