Great peek in to history. Especially enjoyed seeing the tomb of the forgotten soldier display which I do not remember seeing in my past trips here 8+ years ago.

Although the web site said the museum was open, it had actually closed for the season two days ago. But we were not discouraged because there were outdoor exhibits to see. We looked at massive blocks of Vermont marble, marble carvings and came away with...More

This museum is off the beaten track but worth the visit. This former marble factory has a great display and history of marble that's been used to create buildings, statues and many other things. The Hall of Presidents Exhibit is worth it.

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...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...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...More

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

This may be a little different from your usual inquiries....Is there any chance the museum has lists of headstones supplied by Vermont Marble Co and delivered to cemeteries for Civil War veterans? I know the company supplied my great-grandfather's marker in about 1894—the contract is dated Nov. 30, 1894. However, it shows the location of "Mt. Vernon" and there are several cemeteries with this name in the state of Illinois. There is also a city named Mt. Vernon, but my search (online) there has proved negative. So far, my research has not turned up any result with my great-grandfather's name. I live in another state, so I cannot travel throughout Illinois to all of these cemeteries. I have found a copy of the company's order or notice of delivery. I have tried so many resources and just now thought to write to the museum. Any information would be so helpful! Thank you.
