Very well preserved. Also home of the Quilt Museum. If you quilt, this is a must see. I did not go thru the house, my wife did. Could not go up steps, due to bad hip. Sorry I cant say more.

The gal at the front desk was an absolute delight. The mansion itself has been amazingly preserved. Even if the quilts themselves aren't your cup of tea, they are displayed nicely and the history of the house itself is a sight to behold.

A real piece of Skagit history. The Gaches mansion (a stunning Victorian) is lovely and was remodeled well. The quilts were very cool too! They have some very old ones as well as new ones on display. Changes frequently.

Even if you aren't interested in quilts the textiles in this museum are incredible art and it's all laid out in a beautiful historic mansion. It's completely worth a visit!

The Victorian home that houses the quilts is beautiful. We were fortunate to see an exhibit of quilts by Japanese quilters. It was a lovely show. If you are a quilter you would enjoy this museum. There is a small gift shop upstairs with some interesting

As if one needed an excuse to visit LA Conner the Quilt and Textile museum has some of the most exquisite work I have ever seen. An additional bonus are the women there that also give you so much history of the original owner of the house and history of LA Conner.

We love learning the history of old homes like this and enjoy quilts, so were looking forward to visiting here. We did enjoy the quilts on display and the work they have done in restoring this mansion but were disappointed in the lack of information available on the history of the house itself. We realize it is a quilt museum,... More

The view of the water from the third floor tower is excellant. The mission of the La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum is to collect, preserve, and exhibit local, national, and international quilts and textiles; to provide an educational experience; and to preserve the historic Gaches Mansion.
