This is a tiny gallery staffed by passionate quilters. There are excellent exhibits that change often of new and historic quilts, traditional and artistic quilts etc. All very well done--and tempt you to pick up your needle!

I got to visit with my sister, we had the loveliest walk thru this museum. Fascinating pieces, great descriptions, calm environment. It was a perfect visit in every way.

My quilter friend and I were a bit disappointed at the one room quilt museum. The shop nearby was actually more interesting.

There was a nice collection of both traditional and modern quilts. I enjoyed learning the history of them. There' a nice quilt store a couple of blocks away, too..

RMQM is physically small, exhibiting up to 30 quilts at a time. They change the exhibit every 2 months, and feature both traditional and art quilts. Nationally known quilters exhibit here, so it is not just the in house collection of traditional quilts that could be on display. Shop in the cute gift shop, and if you need a more... More

This is indeed a small museum but always has good exhibition. Different visit, one see different quilts. True, Sue Nickels & Pat Holly's quilts are mostly by machine but one has to admire their technic and design! The ladies work there are volunteers and very helpful. We were lucky at our last visit - on a free day.

This is not a huge museum - just 20 or 30 quilts. They are incredible in terms of design. I also liked the raffle - $1 for a chance at a gorgeous quilt - hope I win!

Basically, it was a display of 2 ladies quilts, machine sewn, and pretty standard. A few of them had great colors, but there were only about 15 or so quilts. The entries at the Wisconsin State Fair are better than this.

The lady whose collection forms the basis of this exhibit did a great job. There are many quilts from the late 1800s in excellent condition on display, and the variety and quality are quite good. Interspersed with these are new creations by master quilters (Paducah award-winners). Not much interpretation here, but honestly, if you're stopping at the quilt museum, you... More

Although not a quilter myself, I love the art. Art in fabric is definately what you will encounter. Exhibits change regularly and there are ongoing special shows and visitors. Another great stop in Golden, especially with your girlfriend!
