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.

A great bit of history and a super museum of knowledge. The hall of Presidents is breathtaking. Learning about the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was totally worth the visit. Never knew there were so so many different marbles.

Great spot to stop and look around. Some reviews had me nervous that this was a time suck. Museum was nice and had several interesting areas.

We took the train up from Rutland, and I barely had enough time to see the whole museum. So many beautiful carvings, displays, interactive displays, etc. We loved it. Hope to get back there soon. Enjoy

Located in the old Vermont Marble company plant building, this museum will probably heighten your knowledge of marble. A number of displays tell how the business of obtaining raw marble from the quarry and then finishing it into a final product was done. Includes some...More
