A small museum, which I would characterize as a gallery. The staff were friendly and knowledgable. There was a surprising variety of styles of quilt top patterns displayed. Traditional blocks and piecing as well as some truely original artistic wall hangings.

We have always appreciated quilting art and this small museum right on Main Street was a gem. The woman behind the ticket counter was extremely friendly and informative. A very nice selection of quilts with extraordinary hand work. Even if you are not into this type of art form, the chance to see such well made and artistic quilts is... More

These are not quilts you buy at the store. These quilts required creativity, patience, practice, and skill. The designs are eye-boggling up close and pop out at you from a distance. Not all art is in the art museum -- you'll find it here. Courteous & knowledgeable docents guide you (or tour yourself). Also, Golden is a fun town.

One day, I would love to make a quilt...... The current display is a sample of eleven years of one quilter's work. "In the British Tradition-Quilts by Carolyn Konig" The best part was that she was there to show and talk about her work and what inspires her to make these masterpieces. The museum was one of my favorite stops... More

We took my mother-in-law, a quilter, to this venue. We were under impressed, unfortunately. There is a fee, and the quilts were pretty, just not that many or what we expected. For the entry fee price, eh, not so much

Being a quilter i could not resist going into this small quilt museum. I am so very glad i did. They had a wonderful exhibit of small quilts made by 50 diffrent people from all 50 states. They were all given a theme and had to use certain colors in certain spots. The whole thing was just amazing and a... 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

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 a docent give us the tour. I learned a lot, and my family really loved it.

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.
