Paid $5 for a small room of offensive, liberal slanted, mostly machine quilted and pre-printed quilts. Very offended by an anti-President Elect quilt. Very unprofessional and unpatriotic! Don't waste your money going to this place.

I was blown away by the quality of quilts at this little museum. Fascinating to think of all the hours and the vision it takes to see the outcome before you start.

It's something you throw on your bed to keep you warm, right? Used to be, but now it's an art form, too. After seeing the quilts in Paducah, KY last spring we became much more appreciative of the skill involved and the beauty of the...More

My wife is a serious artistic quilter so was enthralled at these quilts. It was amazing to see the variety of the "New York Beauty" style of quilting. I don't know much about quilting but was astonished at the hand detail. Often it's good to...More

On our trip, we had a quilter and she wanted to go to the Museum. She loved it. She brought a quilt kit & I can't wait for the finished quilt.

My wife is a quilter and we stop a quilt stores and Museums when we travel. The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum is very nice and worth the stop. Check their web site I heard they may be moving to a larger location.

My husband's mother and grandmother were quilters and I have learned how to sew very simple quilts. This collection blew us away. Some of the quilts are almost 200 yrs old and still so beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful and very informative....More

Nice, small and friendly museum. Friendly and knowledgeable docents. Really what you expect from a home-town quilt museum. There is also a nice quilt shop across the street.

Very nice greeter, knowledgeable about the exhibit. Today's exhibit was from Australia. Beautiful exquisite work. Astounding. You can take pics of the displays, but as any art exhibit, do not touch. Browse at your leisure, there are many quilting books to look through.

This was not as advertised. Paid $5 to enter a small room of extremely controversial, mostly machine quilted, and all liberal themed. Some were insulting. Why would anyone go there?

When I went in June 2016 there were a lot of quilts there I believe from Australia. Craftsmanship was awesome & so many creative items. The display changes, but not sure how often. I was pleased with the exhibit. Sorry... More
