Lots to see and very interesting exhibits and videos, staff are wonderful. Sculptor on site. Gift shop carried wide variety of marble gifts. Only thing would make it better would be to provide refreshments.

If you want to see what are the uses for marble, you need to visit here. The tour is self-guided and worth the entrance fee. The best part was the hall of presidents. They don’t have the latest presidents, but they have enough! This is...More

Daughter and visited the museum and it was like going back in time. I would love to have been a fly in that marble museum. It was great learning about all that with daughter. The presidents too.
