The first thing to say is, I feel, that you should not be put off by the slightly unmaintained appearance of the large former marble works building in which the Museum and Gift Shop are housed. The displays of marble items and the recounting of the history of marble in Vermont are first class. Don't fail to commence your visit... More

Beautiful but sad story about how the marble industry, once so robust, is a fraction of the size it once was. This is not the most exciting museum but its a nice stop if you are willing to go slow and read exhibits and look at photos. I was particularly fascinated with the exhibit about the creation of the Tomb... More

We fell in love w/the marble sidewalks of Manchester Vermont and decided we had to learn more about its history. The Marble Museum was the place to go! Before you even get to the first floor of the museum, you walk up two staircases bookended with - wait for this - marble hand bannisters that were both silky and substantial... More

I would recommend this to anyone that is even close to the area. It is truly great place to visit and learn about so many things you use everyday that contain marble and how that so much of our nations capital is tied to this very stone. The tour is worth every cent of what it costs and it is... More

I had not been to the Vermont Marble Museum in many years. Got invited to an Event there. I had forgotten how interesting and educational the Museum is. Part of history that most folks don't know about. Is a little off the tourist route, but well worth the time it takes to go see it.

Interesting to see how marble is quarried and the variety of colors and how it can be made into a variety of useful items.

Admission is like $9 for adults and doesn't include any view of the quarry or actual production. Take the stairs / elevator up to 2nd floor where all the exhibits are. Some rooms of marble presidential castings and moderately interesting text and photo displays of the production process. A room of text and photos about the Tomb of Unknown Soldier... More

Enjoyed visit to the Vermont Marble Museum. Loved the display of the different marble slabs and the beautiful sculptures made by the in-residence sculptor. The museum was well worth the entrance fee, but it would be nice to put this information on the Museum's website.
