This is one of the best small town musems I have every been to. They tell the story of how this great company impacted the area. What kind of flexibity of thought is needed to survive and thrive in a small town. I was deeply impressed with the committment to the community the Marvin family has. Free and worth the... More

While at the Marvin Training Facility I had the opportunity to visit the museum located in the same building. It was awesome! The history of Marvin Windows is perfectly laid out. It is amazing how much the Marvin family has done for the town of Warroad. If you are in the area you should also visit The Shed located across... More

A 10-star rating for this visitors center and tour is what we rate this place!! The center has done a fantastic job showcasing the history of the company. And the tour of the 1,000,000 square-foot factory (which must be prearranged) is a gem! Definitely make plans to stay in Warroad long enough to stop in.

The visitor center has great static displays concerning the history of the company and the products Marvin's builds. Make sure to find out why the factor tours are scheduled...this is the must see part of your visit. The tour takes you on the floor and follows the process from when the order is received until the order is shipped to... More

I may sound bias as we are a Marvin Window & Door distributor, but their Training & Visitors Center is fantastic. The personnel are so friendly, make you most welcome, the center is informative, the museum and the story of Marvin is so well put together and interesting. Even if a window is just a window to you, its well... More

Lonnie was a great teacher. I really enjoyed the plant tour and hands and training that I received. I also really believe in Marvin and their mission for a better window. We ran into some weather and Marvin Did an excellent job accommodating everyone.

It's a nice building and has some interesting information. Restrooms were clean. They also offer flight service to Minneapolis and back.

I was born and raised in Warroad and worked summers at Marvin's in the hardware store. In the afternoons Clark Gorham and I would go out to the shop and bind and put the mailing address on the bundles of sash and other woodwork. I am proud to say I am from such a vibrant town. Made that way by... More
