The Museum is in an old house which is very interesting with wonderful fireplace surrounds and floor. The quilts are displayed on three floors and there is a wonderful gift shop offering items for the quilter as well as non quilter. The display changes three times a year. Well worth the trip.

This museum is a great stop as you travel 81. It is in the downtown area and is in walking distance to several eating places. Parking is easy and right behind the museum. The exhibits rotate so return visits are just as fresh. There is a delightful gift shop with fun "quilter" presents. The admission price is well worth the... More

Very well done and interesting. The quilts are beautifully displayed. The house they are in is a treasure itself. It is a great example of the houses in this area. It would be interesting to add more information about the house itself, as it has an interesting history.

Quilt Museums may be few and far between... but this Museum is a Must See when in the Harrisonburg area. The organization: Virginia Quilt Museum, turned an old local building into a wonderful, historic museum about quilting, and uses shows to grow interest and enhance one's appreciation for the craft. And in a great environment. I've "steered" a good number... More

The museum is located in an historic house and has a large number of quilts on display. They have rotating displays of quilts from around the country. My wife, (who is a quilter) was very impressed with the quality of the quilts they had on display. Parking is on street, and one nice thing is that there are no meters,... More

If you are a quilter you need to stop by and visit. A lot of amazing quilts in an old house which is also very interesting. I thought the price was a little high but worth it. Nice gift room.

The museum is not large but is located in a very old home and loaded on 2 floors with some beautiful hand made quilts. If you have ever seen these made or have any made by you or your family, this would be a very enjoyable place to visit. The displays are well marked with the artist's information and the... More

The Virginia Quilt Museum is a nice-sized museum in a historic house in a nice part of old town Harrisonburg. The exhibits are well-marked and there are folks handy to explain what you need to know. The quilts are nicely displayed and except for a few of the higher-hung small quilts, you can really see the techniques and the needle... More

The quilted pieces and sizes provide many ideas for a quilter's inspiration. The VQM also has a nice gift shop with a number of books and designs, as well as quilting accessories, for... More

I went with an avid quilt maker and she was delighted with the exhibits. When we went there was an old wick quilts exhibit downstairs and a really unusual one of diseases made into quilts. They had a picture of the cells of that the particular disease next to the quilt of that picture. Very different and interesting. It's a... More
