The tour is approximately 40 minutes in length and typically runs rain or shine. Our tours depart at 10:30, 11:30, 12:40, 1:40, and 2:40 . Tours are first come, first served. Caravan options available, road not suitable for motorcycles.

Please note that quarriers work Monday-Friday, 7-3:30, except for holidays and associated days, and therefore, there are no workers in the quarry for the tours on Saturdays.

Tourism - Guided Quarry Tour
Self-guided factory tour

Self-guided factory tour

Experiencing a 160,000 square-foot factory from an observation deck is not to be missed. The factory is an exercise in contrasts, combining the new with the old. You can see artisans using hand tools in much the same way as Michelangelo did centuries ago. These little-changed, artistic endeavors are mingled with computer-guided, diamond-tipped saws and precision grinders.

Free admission

Open Monday—Friday, 8:30-3:30

Closed on holidays, associated days & the week of July 4th

Outdoor granite
bowling lane

Developed as a prototype for use in commercial lanes, our granite bowling lane has delighted millions of visitors since 1958. Because a traditional bowling ball will eventually break when striking the hard granite lane, the concept never took off. That is why you will not see granite on the lanes of your hometown bowling alley. But the rubber balls we provide will offer you and your family a free, fun-filled experience during your Rock of Ages visit.
