This Museum has great rotating exhibits. Also has past Aqs quilt show winners - really stunning. Staff is friendly and helpful. There is a really nice gift shop. Watch the Web site for upcoming displays.

This is a wonderful museum. I went here with my Mom, and we had a wonderful time. The quilts are beautiful to see, and the staff member told me they rotate them. You're admission fee is good all day, so you can even go back again that day.

This is a very exciting, world-class museum! The quilts are beautiful ... magnificent beyond mere words (not ordinary and predictable). Even my husband enjoyed the tour with our wonderful docent, Debra. If you are an art lover or a quilt enthusiast, you will not be disappointed in this excellent museum. We loved it!

The quilt museum is a must see for anyone who can appreciate beauty and craftsmanship. I'm a quilter so I know all that goes into producing a beautiful quilt. I was humbled by what I saw. My husband accompanied me, and even though I was ready to give him points for "enduring" the visit, he was so impressed with what... More

It was a pleasant break in a long drive from Lexington, Ky. to Nauvoo. IL. We had heard about it so we stopped to visit it. It wasn't a large place but it did have amazing award winning quilts on display, even my husband was impressed by them. The admittance fee and guided tour was slightly more than I felt... More

The Naional Quilt Museum is an amazing place to visit. For those that enjoy the "traditional" quilts (eg - double wedding ring, log cabin, etc) and for those that enjoy the more modern quilts and fiber art...this is heaven on earth! These displays are true works of art. I'm amazed by the creativity and superb workmanship - whether by hand... More

If you like quilts, it's amazing. Do not make my mistake and drag along others who do not give a hoot about such things.
