  • This is art people. A combo of historic and new quilts in a world class building. Check the exhibit schedule and be amazed at the variety. Don't miss it.

  • Simply spectacular. Throughout the main stage exhibit (collection) comprised of mostly unnamed quilters, I was reminded of how the fabric arts are symbolic of womanhood, domesticity, and the embodiment of tradition and even storytelling that is inherently feminine. What a patient and protean art. It’s a great museum if you want an exhibit that’s small and not too overwhelming. Wished there were prints (posters) available of certain quilts but that’s ok. Would recommend if you like to be surrounded by nerdy women.
  • This is a really beautiful and unique museum. Even if you're not into quilting, it's definitely worth seeing the artistry and craftsmanship of talented quilters. It's very quiet and clean plus the staff is very friendly. Highly recommend visiting this museum!
