This is a museum for textile art and the art department. The small wall hangings use quilting methods, but are pieces of art rather than usable quilts. The International Quilts from Central Asia were very interesting. If you want to see traditional quilts, you would...More

I was disappointed by this museum. It is more of a building on the campus with a few art gallerias attached with some quilts in it. I have seen better quilts in my travels with the Amish. The quilts were mostly art style quilts and...More

Amazing venue! The Fibre Art Displays on 3 floors were diverse as well as presented in a very unique way. Not just impaled on the wall the one show was intelligently respectfully displayed in a very unique and compelling way.

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...More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express after a horrible experience at the Days Inn at the north end of Lincoln. We ate at several locations and I'm afraid I don't recall which restaurant was close to the museum. The museum and... More
