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!

This was a wonderful experience. My favorite was the wooden quilt displayed in a meeting room at the front of the museum.

Right off the bat, I’ll admit I wasn’t that excited to go to this museum—but I’m so glad I did! It is as much an art and history museum as anything else. Since the exhibits rotate there is a wide variety of practical quilts and...More
