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.

Some stunning quilts on show from Japan, when we were there. The house has an interesting history that was explained to us by the volunteers that keep the place going.

This was a 2 for 1 visit. The Gaches Mansion that houses the quilts is a beautifully restored home and the historic overview that is presented is very interesting. The antique quilts displayed on the main floor are a perfect fit. The exhibit on the second floor expands the idea of quilts and the exhibition of Marianne Burr's work on... More

The museum is located in a super cute little town and in an 120 year old house. You can literally feel and taste the good old days. The stairs are squeezing and several rooms are filled with old furniture and requisites. It's a small museum but I really enjoyed it
