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!

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!
