The docent-led tour made this visit to the museum well worth the time. I might even suggest that if you can't take the informative tour, reschedule your visit. This is NOT a quilt show. The museum's purpose is to study/compare/preserve quilts and their history. Yes, there are some beautiful quilts, but more importantly, why they are on exhibit is their... More

We visited the museum at the tail end of our trip, and despite the docent's disparagement of regional museums, and even the National Quilt Museum, their exhibits were sparse and disappointing. Supposedly the museum has 4000 quilts in it's repository and yet they have less than 40 on display. Understanding that they are a study center attached to a university... More

What a fantastic place to visit! Even if you don't like quilting, you'd love the history, world vision, and the amazing perspective this one man gives to such an art form! Knowing the displays change will certainly bring me back!

We visited this museum during a trip to Lincoln, Nebraska. Located on the East campus of the University of Nebraska, the museum offers a fasinating glimpse into the art of Quilting. The exhibit rooms are welcoming, small, and intimate, with comfortable benches in which to view these creations. The rooms are not arranged chronologically; each room offers a thematic exposition...

Easy access. It was a self guided tour for my wife and I. The quilts on display were amazing. Not that big, but still very nice.

I've wanted to visit this museum for years. Over 4000 quilts in their collection; sounds overwhelming but they have only a few on exhibit at any one time. I was lucky enough to see the exhibit of log cabin quilts, and a very interesting exhibit of whole cloth quilts. I also enjoyed the informational exhibit about how quilts can deteriorate... More

This museum is well worth a visit. I enjoyed the well displayed quilts and the information with each one. The building itself is also very interesting. I hope to visit again.

An outstanding quilt museum. Excellent exhibit and docent. I wish they were able to display more pieces at one time.

My wife was looking forward to visiting this museum. We didn't arrive until 3:15 on a Saturday afternoon and were concerned that we would be able to see everything by the 4:00 closing. "No problem," said the receptionist. "You will be able to finish it." So we paid the $6 per person admission and entered the main galleries up the... More

My wife is a quilter, and as much as I can be bored by some things, I found this very interesting. The histry, lessons, examples, and such, makes for a stop that is worth making.
