The quilt museum provides a stunning display of quilts in many genres such as pieced, appliqued, and embroidered. The displays change frequently which means no two visits would likely be the same. I would recommend a visit to anyone who enjoys handcrafted items.

On a recent road trip we wanted to find something interesting to visit between Nashville and St. Louis. The National Quilte Museum had a sign on the freeway so we decided to stop there. We were so glad we did. The variety of designs here was amazing. And the detail was insane. There were probably around 10 quilts, some more... More

My wife, who is a quilter, and myself visited this museum. She rated it as very good, myself I rated it as average. They have some excellent and unique quilts on display, but to be honest, if you like good quilts the average quilt show has equally good quilts. The museum focuses on unique quilts made of "strange" materials. There... More

Even if you aren't a quilter, this is a stop to be made. The art is extraordinary and between the guided tour and the close up nature of the installation, you may spend long minutes tracing the stitching on just one of these masterpieces, marveling at the precision. The exhibit spaces flow one into another, the exhibit labels are detailed... More

My wife, being an award winning quilter, wanted to visit the internationally acclaimed quilting museum in Paducah, Kentucky. Entering I was amazed at the interior which is very well planned. The cost to enter for seniors is 10.00 each with a tour guide. Brian told us many details involving various 2016 quilt categories. Marilyn Badger, nationally renowned quilter, won the... More

The museum changes displays on a regular basis and they seem to outdo themselves each time. Quilts come from all over and the techniques and beauty leave one breathless. This is a must for a quilter or art lover.

This place is wonderful. They call the items quilts, but they should be called fabric art. While some of the quilts could be placed on a bed, they are all all art quilts that show best on a wall. Traditional and nontraditional designs, colors, and fabrics. I enjoyed viewing these quilts more than viewing traditional paintings at an art museum.... More

Wow--what a great collection of artwork. I was never exposed to quilting before visiting the Quilt Museum, but I certainly have more appreciation for the craft after my visit. I would recommend this stop to anyone passing through Paducah.
