This was my second visit to the quilt museum. I don't quilt, but come from a long line of quilters, and I appreciate the talent that is needed to accomplish these pieces. From the practical to the abstract, you will see it all and I...More

Something for everyone here! From old quilts to a Japanese art collection currently on display, there are wonders that will take your breath away. I am impressed! Even my husband liked it as there was a wooden quilt! Worth the time!
I am not a quilter but appreciate the beauty of them and the work that goes into producing one. With that said, it only took us about an hour to tour the museum. Maybe if you are a quilter and want to study the design...More

Hello Traveler. If you are really into quilts, you could spend the whole day there. If you want to have a glimpse into an important element of the American experience, but don't need to examine every single quilt, in minute detail, a couple hours or even a little less will work for you! Spare some time to see the riverfront and the murals on the flood wall. Downtown Paducah is a great place to spend the day.
