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

This museum was free and we still got a guided tour which was just fine. Found out lots of interesting things about quilting, the colors and techniques. Very interesting small museum.

I have experienced my most inspirational quilt moments here and my most ho-hum moments. I keep returning when in Golden because I know there are potentially fantastic quilts to be seen. They always display excellent workmanship so stop in if you love the art of quilting. It will not disappoint and it just may set your quilting vibes on fire.... More

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!
