Features exciting historical exhibits, artifacts and educational displays. Three tiers of self-guided exhibits allow visitors to see unique granite products as well as antique granite working tools used in the quarrying, sawing, polishing, cutting and sandblasting of granite cemetery memorials.

Among the unique granite creations and artifacts found in the museum is the statue called "Dutchy," the first statue crafted of Elberton granite. He was toppled in 1900 and buried on Elberton's Sutton Square. Records pointed to his location on the square, and in 1982 he was exhumed, and now occupies a place in the Granite Museum.
