Impressive display of the best of the best in quilts. While visiting Hancock's of Paducah fabric store, we took in the museum. It was quite impressive. The only disappointment is that we were not allowed to take pictures. Although the value for the entrance fee ($11) is good.....no pictures is a downer.

The quilts on display are beyond description. The work that the artists put into them is just stunning. My favorite was of a forest scene in California. I felt like I could just step into it. The detail was fantastic. I was a little disappointed in the fact that there was not anything about the history of quilting or artifacts... More

Don't miss the National Quilt Museum with exhibits of traditional beautifully crafted quilts as well as contemporary designs. Loved the exhibit "quilt by design" where skilled quilters took antique or imperfect quilt topics and turned them into works to save and admire. In the bookstore, more books on quilting in one space than you can imagine.

A vast museum with many styles and types of quilts from all over the country. I have never seen a place like it. There is even a wooden quilt! (you might not be able to spot it though).

I come through here every time I am in Paducah. Love the fact they change exhibits regularly. I'm never disappointed! They have such a wide range, too! I am a scrap quilter, not an art quilter. I always love the variety of types they have. You will enjoy!

I am a sewer, my daughter is not. I was worried my daughter would not enjoy, but she willingly came with me. Hubby stayed back in the b&b to work on his laptop. Daughter thought it was great! Yay! Me too. We took the guided tour & that's what made it great. Even though I detected I was a more... More

Our destination was the National Quilt Museum based on a friend's recommendation. We drove out of our way to experience it and we are so glad we did. I have an appreciation for quilts and have some passed to me through my family. But I do not quilt myself. I was overwhelmed by the artistry and imagination presented in both... More
