Don't miss the opportunity to take the FREE factory tour, even if you are not interested in guitars. Too much history here, 180 years in business, fabulous tour, incredible museum and the opportunity to play legendary guitars in a sound room. Not enough stars to...More

Even if you are not a guitarist, you owe it to yourself to tour this amazing factory. Chances are good your favorite singer's guitar was masterfully crafted in this very place! In fact, many artful custom made guitars owned by music stars are on display...More

You don't have to be a guitar expert to appreciate the beauty of Martin Guitars or the history they bring with them. The tour is extremely informative and a must-see if you are in the area!

There's not much I can add to all the other reviews for the Martin Guitar tour. It is free, signing up on a first-come, first served basis. There's a detailed museum of the company, including the musicians who used Martin guitars to create some of...More

Wow, what a great place to visit. The museum. Factory tours, where you can see the artisans making their magic in the instruments. Order a custom instrument, too. This is ground-zero for acoustic guitar lovers.

You don't have to be a musician to love touring Martin Guitar! It's free to tour and open every weekday. You can tour the actual factory where they make the famous Martin Guitars by hand. It's fun and fascinating. You even get a Martin "hole"...More

The pride and skill that go into the instruments is just amazing. The museum, and the tour are worth every second. I cannot play, but after leaving there I really wish that I could.
