This an interesting and pleasant way to spend an hour and a half in the Rutland area. A small theater offers a video introduction to the geology and history of the once-thriving Vermont marble industry. Thereafter, the museum displays scores of marble statues and architectural...More

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

There are numerous aspects to this site from presidential busts (till HW only) through samples of marble from around the world. If you're in the area, be sure to stop by; may not be worth a special trip though.

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.

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
