PROCTOR - The Vermont Marble Museum in Proctor has resumed its popular free summer-weekend admission policy for visitors. Admission is free on Saturdays and Sundays through Aug. 29.
New to the museum this season is the stirring, patriotic Tomb of the Unknown Soldier exhibit. This is the visual story behind the production of the world famous U.S. military shrine, carved in Proctor in 1931, in honor of our American servicemen and women.
Visit the Hall of Presidents, to view marble busts of presidents from Washington to Obama, and Geology Hall with interactive displays.
The free on-site movie theater screens the story of Vermont's marble industry.
The museum's Resident Artist and Sculpture Gallery is also free on weekends and enables visitors to try their skills at sculpting marble.
Picnics are permitted at the neighboring 19th-century Sutherland Falls Quarry site or on the Proctor Green across from the museum.
The Vermont Marble Museum is located at 52 Main St. in Proctor.
