Our family also found this exhibit or museum was surprisingly fun and educational. (We just remodel the kitchen with granite and marble so it make sense to see where they came from.)
At the entrance there is a nice marble garden. Check it out before you go in.There is a beautiful galleries of marble sculptures and a a good film about the history of the place. My teens like the workshop where a craftsman was working on a piece of marble. The Hall of President’s were very popular.
The souvenirs were very popular with everyone.
Plan for 2+ hours for this visit.
We also walked over the the marble bridge which you have to cross from route 3 to this place. We also visited the Sutherland Falls Quarry. It is not a working quarry. It looks like very little visitor see this quarry but it is free and a short drive or walk for the marble exhibit.
Tip: we also visited the Maple Syrup Museum nearby and grip a good meal in Rutland, VT.
