Charming, small and worth a short visit

This little house has some nice examples of quilting. If you are interested in this craft, pay a visit.

We stopped by the museum while spending the week at Massanutten. To our disappointment, the sign on the door showed that they were closed for 2 months, until 2/3/15. A 2 month closure seems excessive.

You don't have to be a quilter to enjoy this museum. The quilts are beautiful and there is a gift shop as well. It is small but worth seeing.

I am not a quilter, but thought it would be interesting to go to a quilting museum. I was expecting to hear more about the history of quilts.

This is a small museum, but the quilts are absolutely beautiful. It only takes 1/2 hour to go through and they sell some quilting items.

If you love quilts this place is a must see. If I lived in the area I would love to see what's in store for their future rotating exhibits.

Visited this museum while waiting for 4th of July events. Staff were very friendly and knowledgable. Quilts were beautiful! Loved all the info displayed on both the quilts and the house. Entry fee for the gallery was $7 which I didn't mind paying but noticed that later that day they offered free tours. Would have been nice to know earlier...

While we were on vacation at the Massanutten Resort we rode into Harrisonburg to check out the town. Decided to go to the quilt museum and was pleasantly surprised. Staff was very friendly and I think we paid $7 a piece to tour the museum. They had quilts from the local area and and from the Tidewater area of Virginia.... More

A quilt museum may not sound that exciting but this was really enjoyable. We marveled at the handiwork. The quilts dedicated to 9/11 were dramatic, as were the ones from the Civil War era, with the stories of the quilters.

If you are looking for a place to do volunteer work (Or get away from the house, kids, etc!), this place is it! They welcomed me and my two children to work as docents and shop clerks, and my daughter Rachel participated in a quilting exhibit at the tender age of 10! Her very first quilt! Love, love, love the... More
