Put this on our itinerary when we visited Lincoln because my wife used to make quilts and I thought she might like a museum dedicated to quilts. Surprisingly I enjoyed it as well. The quilts range from artistic medium to the ones Grandma made. The Japanese Quilts are just plain beautiful and spectacular and the Log Cabin quilts felt comfortable... More

I admit, I expected as a quilter wanna-be that I would visit and marvel at the talent and skill necessary to create beautiful quilts. I also expected to see a variety of quilts, reflective of different eras. The museum has over 5000 quilts which they rotate so that the same quilts are not always on display. On the date of... More

Beautiful facility. I really enjoyed the exhibits. They also have a nice 'shop' with some unique quilting items.

Superb collection of historical and modern Quilts. Beautifully displayed in gallery settings. 3 or 4 curated shows plus several other focused smaller groups or individual Quilt artists showing at all times. The architecture is very interesting by Robert A M Sterns ,incorporating many Quilt motifs.

Were were here for their First Friday concert night and it was a great experience. The acoustics were very nice for the concert, the people were very friendly and the exhibits were interesting for me and my two daughters (5th grade and 1st grade).

I went with 4 other women and I wasn't too excited about the quilt museum. I was mesmerized by the beautiful quilts, and the variety was amazing! Not just 'grandmas quilts', but true art forms and historic ones as well. I would certainly recommend it and if I go back to Lincoln, I would go back, since they change displays.

A tour is the best way to see this beautiful museum. To realize that over 5,000 quilts are housed and cared for here is astounding. The tour in the vault was so interesting and helped us understand the dedication that goes into preserving and maintaining these antique quilts. What a beautiful space for learning and appreciating the history of quilts... More

This place is fantastic if you are looking to gracefully end a romantic relationship. The quilt museum is a large, beautiful, and quiet facility dedicated to quilts. Quilts are kind of like art, except they are boring and passionless. I took a girl here because our relationship was boring and passionless. Afterwards we both agreed that the museum was awful...
