We visited this museum as part of a brief visit to Stanstead where you can start at the Haskell library (in the U.S. but on the line), go to the Granite Museum, go to the standing stones, and visit the lavender farm. The museum is a delightful country history museum and serves a lovely tea in an airy tea room.... More

The Granite Exhibit Museum is a look back at the history of the area and all the granite quarries that it contains. In the same building is a wonderful collection of thousands of Lionel model trains along with a working railway system.

Even if you have no real interest in model trains you will be more than pleased taking a tour through this museum AND the granite museum in the same building. Don't miss the city tour either!

Great little museum about granite (we didn’t visit train expedition). Knowledgeable guided tour, speaks good English. Also go for the free Stanstead guided tour – interesting and informative.

On a recent tour of the area, we stopped in to this exhibit and museum and found it very interesting. Our tour guide was someone who had worked in the granite business all of his life and was very knowledgeable. As well, a new addition to the exhibit was another section of the building set aside for a Lionel train... More
