I was looking forward to this and was quite disappointed. I thought there would be more quilts. It was a variety of things (rugs, looms, yoyos, etc.) that may be interesting to some, but not for me. Not worth the entrance fee.

The hooked rug exhibit is wonderful. The colors, designs and craftsmanship are delightful. It was fascinating to see various ways that wool is died and then cut. Other exhibits are uneven but still lots of fun to see. The woman who greeted us was very welcoming and helpful with information. I am very glad I visited this center.

Hidden away in this corner of Tillamook is the Quilting museum which is worth a visit just to see the beautiful handiwork from the 19C and later. Some amazing designs and material. I was disappointed the my luggage would not allow a full size quilt to be taken away. Nothing to dislike.

I'm a quilter so I was very excited when my daughter looked on Trip Advisor and found this little museum for our rainy afternoon. I happily paid the $12 for the three of us to enter and was ready t to see some quilts! There was an exhibit from a "quilt collector" so it was a mish mash of quilts... More

We live about 12 miles away from this museum and visit it quite frequently. Many folks think it would be of interest to only women but men also will enjoy a visit to the museum. They have a wide range of different types of quilts and other craft items; many of the exhibits would be difficult to find in other... More

Latimer Center is a great place to see traditional skills being used.... weaving, quilting, tatting, rug hooking and knitting. They have exhibits that change every two months and have had some award winning quilting and weaving artists in those shows. They have a wonderful collection of the tools of the trade on exhibit in flat drawers, have several looms being... More

We felt that this was a bit too costly for browsing their limited inventory (along with an African exhibition) of quilts. Also was disappointed that the two woman in the weaving room felt it was more important to continue chatting and an early lunch break versus taking a few minutes to demonstrate what they do for my daughter on one...

We enjoyed our stop here to look at the quilts. Feels like you're taking a step back in time with the historic building and friendly staff. Lots of beautiful quilts to look at in both old and new techniques. We recommend a stop.

They seem to have a lot of talented artists & very well displayed, also great volunteers, which is no doubt the heart of the place. The traveling show was wonderful & a lot of beautiful items to buy, as well.I was there for 2 hours & could have stayed longer.

I must preface my review by saying that I'm not a quilter and I'm under the age of 40...Despite the rave reviews, I felt let down by this place. I might have felt differently if it was free, but I honestly felt that $4 was too much for this 'museum' that took me all of 15 minutes to peruse. There... More
