Wife loved it. I drank the coffee and waited for her to see all she wanted to see. If you like old quilts and handmade stuff this is the place for you.

My quilting buddies and I went to the museum and had a great experience looking at old textile projects ss well as new techniques that were on display. We highly recommend this venue for all who quilt and all who just want to view quilts, looms and other ways of making projects from textiles.

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...
