Join us on October 15, 2022 from 4-7 PM when we open our doors to the public for an exhibition, showing of three historic films and to see the old exhibition before it is reconfigured. There are important changes proposed for the old Vermont Marble Company building. We’d love your feedback on our plans for the future, and ask:
- What do you remember and want to share about the museum and the company?
- What brings or brought you to this museum?
- And what you hope to see in the future of and for the Vermont Marble Museum?
The Vermont Marble Museum is reorganizing as it moves into a new space in the old Vermont Marble Company building. As we reconfigure our exhibit space we are developing programming and opening our doors periodically to visitors.
The pandemic has had a tremendous impact on the way cultural institutions operate and we have decided to take it as an opportunity to assess the mission of the museum and scope of what we offer to the public.
We are partnering with the Preservation Trust of Vermont to display and interpret the collection, as well as develop educational and research programming of this important collection. We also welcome our new landlords, Zion Growers.

While the museum is not yet open during regular hours, we are offering a number of special events open to the public starting in Autumn 2022. These events include screenings of historical films used by the Vermont Marble Company to promote their products and a special exhibition in October. We look forward to meeting you all and hearing your memories of past visits to the museum as well as receiving feedback on what you’d like to see from us in the future.
