I'm not into quilts, but brought family members who are. Current exhibits are very different from each other, but both are lovely. Native American quilts were breathtaking. We had... read more

Modern quilts, old time historical quilts, made when quilters were using every little piece of material in the house. One quilt had more than 3,000 tiny pieces. The quilt behind the entrance desk was so beautiful I signed up for 6 raffle tickets on the off chance I might win it. They also have a gift shop with things you... More

I'm not a quilter, but my traveling friend is. In spite of my strong leanings for abstract art, I've learned to appreciate the skills of this structured art. So I've tagged along here a few times and must say that I'm impressed each time. The exhibits are interesting, well lit, well documented, and varied. It's a small space. Admission is... More

my wife the quilter said we had to go. So upon arrival they had some very nice quilts hanging in the window. We entered and the price was $10 each, my wife said way to much to look a quilts. So we didn't go in, just window shopped.

I have absolutely no interest in ever quilting but can certainly appreciate the time and creativity that goes into making them. I also have many friends who do quilt. This is a tiny little gift shop/store with quilting supplies and a museum that charges $$. They also had an odd assortment of non-quilting things to buy. Some locally made by... More

Not a huge museum but the attention to detail is great. There is a collection of antique quilts which have been lovingly preserved. There is also an exhibition of quilts using an amazing variety of modern techniques. Mainly wall hangings but very thought provoking with lots of detail. Scotti was a very knowledgable guide.

I really enjoyed my trip to this museum and am disappointed by some of the other reviews on this site. The museum is small, but it is well appointed with frequently changing exhibits. The staff are wonderful, friendly and knowledgable. This is a great stop for any quilter.

My brother lives in Denver. I'm a quilter. I've always wanted to go to Golden to see the RMQM and get a copy of Sandra Dallas' "The Quilt That Walked to Golden" right from the locale. So I drive out from Ohio and he takes me to the Museum. It's a storefront, basically, small and intimate space. The exhibit was... More

Herself had this on her itinerary (perhaps I'd have headed for the brewery visit), but on a drizzly day I had my marching orders. Well it was fascinating. We have our local quilting shops and covens here in Devon but this was much more than just another collection of old quilts. There was a full range from the early setler... More
