Amazing venue! The Fibre Art Displays on 3 floors were diverse as well as presented in a very unique way. Not just impaled on the wall the one show was intelligently respectfully displayed in a very unique and compelling way.

Superb collection of historical and modern Quilts. Beautifully displayed in gallery settings. 3 or 4 curated shows plus several other focused smaller groups or individual Quilt artists showing at all times. The architecture is very interesting by Robert A M Sterns ,incorporating many Quilt motifs.

I went with 4 other women and I wasn't too excited about the quilt museum. I was mesmerized by the beautiful quilts, and the variety was amazing! Not just 'grandmas quilts', but true art forms and historic ones as well. I would certainly recommend it...More
