Great tour if you love to see how something is made. Quaint museum and they have a room to play all the different models. I loved their 12 string. Best of all it is free.

My son and I took a factory tour at Martin Guitar. You go on the shop floor and get to see up close how a guitar is made. The people who build the guitars are true craftsmen! It's amazing to watch them do all the intricate details that go into building a guitar. They also have a museum where you can see all the guitars and mandolins that were made from the company's founding in 1833. They also have a "Pickin' Room" where players can play some of the companies higher end guitars. It doesn't matter if you're a musician or not you will really enjoy the tour.

The tours are free & even if you don't play it's very enjoyable. It's much more than what you'd expect !

I am in the musical instrument rental business and went to the Martin factory to see how much of American craftsmanship was still alive and well. I was very pleasantly surprised at the detail and time spent giving me a free tour of the factory. At over an hour with a knowledgeable guide who fielded a variety of questions from the tour group flawlessly I recommend this stop if for no other reason just to see responsible wood and resource management along with pride in producing a quality product. Most people have no idea how something is actually made and this tour takes you from raw materials to finished product. After the tour a visit to the factory museum reveals how much of an influence on music the Martin family has made since 1833. I highly recommend this stop if you can make it.

Excellent tour for all ages. Upon entering you are greeted by staff who will sign you up for the next available tour. Then until your tour group is called, you have time to wander through the museum area or visit the gift shop. The museum has a lot of martin acoustic guitar history from the very beginning of the company. Gift shop has a music room where you are free to play with various guitars on display, some worth thousands of dollars. The tour is through the actual factory, and you see up close the different steps in the guitar making process. They provide each person with a wireless headset so that you can hear e guide over factory noise. Lots of free parking. Highly recommend.
