Exactly what we expected and the staff was informative. One of us was into quilts, the rest of us were not. Still a good stop.

Allow two to three hors to go through it. Well worth the cost of admission. Quilts show different details in each one. There was hand quilted and machine quilted quilts on display. Ample parking and walking distance to restaurants.

Whether or not you are a quilter, you will enjoy this museum. They are absolutely beautiful works of art. When we visited they had a special exhibit of Pat Durbin's quilts & they were AMAZING! Definitely worth the stop!!

There is no way to put into words the pieces of art that fill this museum. There are traditional quilts, modern pieces, historical pieces, etc. But, each piece is exquisite and unique. Men and women will both enjoy the great exhibits.

Be aware this is more of an art museum than a useful quilt museum. Very few of these quilts would be used on a bed. That said, the artwork was amazing!

Ok, quilts are boring right.....NOT! Don't miss this place. We did the guided tour and it was unbelievable. The guide tour was an hour or more and was worth the extra modest cost for the education that enables you to really enjoy the exhibits. The...More

We have a truck and RV parking lot on second street behind the museum. As long as there are places available you should be fine. RV's park back there every day.
