The quilts were impressive but if was more an art show than quilt museum. Less than 50 quilts on display. For $8, I did not think it was worth it unless you are an avid advanced quilter.

Small but very interesting museum. Had a detailed tour by a knowledgeable docent that really made the visit worthwhile.

Paid $5 for a small room of offensive, liberal slanted, mostly machine quilted and pre-printed quilts. Very offended by an anti-President Elect quilt. Very unprofessional and unpatriotic! Don't waste your money going to this place.

I was blown away by the quality of quilts at this little museum. Fascinating to think of all the hours and the vision it takes to see the outcome before you start.

On our trip, we had a quilter and she wanted to go to the Museum. She loved it. She brought a quilt kit & I can't wait for the finished quilt.

My wife is a quilter and we stop a quilt stores and Museums when we travel. The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum is very nice and worth the stop. Check their web site I heard they may be moving to a larger location.

My husband's mother and grandmother were quilters and I have learned how to sew very simple quilts. This collection blew us away. Some of the quilts are almost 200 yrs old and still so beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful and very informative....More

When I went in June 2016 there were a lot of quilts there I believe from Australia. Craftsmanship was awesome & so many creative items. The display changes, but not sure how often. I was pleased with the exhibit. Sorry... More
