This site was the motivation for our excursion to Tillamook. While there were no active exhibits, which we knew, there was less to see than anticipated. Other reviewers have noted a couple of large rooms with quilts hanging, and some items for sale. What we did learn is that if one wanted to view the large number of quilts in another building on this site, one should make a request to do so many weeks in advance in order to make arrangements for a volunteer to be available.

This is located in an old schoolhouse, which is kind of interesting. There really isn't a whole lot to see here unless you are a real quilt fanatic and perhaps need to buy some specialized yarn or pattern or thread.
There was only one room of finished quilts on display.
Honestly, again, if you live and breathe quilts and quilting, this may be of interest to you. Otherwise, I think you will be disappointed.

Out in the middle of the Tillamook farm country sits the Latimer Quilt & Textile Center. It is located in a fully restored 1939 schoolhouse, and features many different kinds of quilts, one room is dedicated to quilting, complete with looms and spinning wheels, I enjoyed watching the artists at work in this room. The room adjacent to this one houses quilts on display, a small TV where you can view a video of the history of Latimer and several drawers that you can open and view handkerchiefs, doll patterns and historical memoralbilia.

The room that used to be auditorium at the school is now a museum, no photography is allowed in this room. The staff is very friendly and admission is only $2.50/pp which is an excellent value for this historical and educational Tillamook attraction.

There is also a small gift shop where you can purchse homemade items, books and souvenirs of the Latimer Quilt Center. If you love fabrics, quilts and sewing don't miss this place while in the Tillamook area.

I must preface my review by saying that I'm not a quilter and I'm under the age of 40...Despite the rave reviews, I felt let down by this place. I might have felt differently if it was free, but I honestly felt that $4 was too much for this 'museum' that took me all of 15 minutes to peruse. There weren't any students or professionals working on any of their pieces on the looms or in the other room, so our experience consisted of viewing quilts in two rooms, in addition to what I believe was a traveling display that didn't seem related to quilting in any way. Wish I could have seen the traveling quilt show like others have mentioned. Since most everything is for sale, I felt like I had just paid to browse around a unique store...my expectations were to see more quilts in their full glory vs folded up, but the reality is that this is a small space and that wouldn't be possible. It would have also been nice to have short descriptions of some of the pieces, or something about the quilter/artist. My suggestions would be to call before you go to ask if there were people working on projects or to see if you could tour their additional collection, which is kept in an adjacent building for viewing per reservations. I wouldn't recommend this for young children, your visit would be brief and I doubt they would be very interested unless they too are quilters like you. On a positive note, I believe that kids under 13 are free. Seniors $3, Adults $4.

This is the second time in two years we have stopped here. my mom is a big quilter and they always have lots of great gifts for quilters.

I enjoy watching the weavers their skill is amazing.

If you are looking for creative inspiration this is a great place to spend 30 mins or more.

This is an amazing attraction for any seamstress or crafter. The artists are willing to answer questions. The library is the holy grail. Don't miss the displays in the drawers. A wonderful community location and tourist attraction!

Wasn't as amazing as we expected but has lots of quilts on display. Serious quilters have probably seen much more impressive stores. Surprised there was an entrance fee.

This is a quaint museum and active work space for fiber artists. The collection appears to rotate. We arrived when the Damascus Fiber Arts School had an exhibit. It was very interesting, but requires rudimentary knowledge of textile arts to appreciate the intricacies of the work. I was most interested in the weaving room and appreciated looking at the projects in progress. A couple of the weavers were willing to talk with us about their work. I appreciated it. Throughout the museum were quilts and other hand crafts on consignment.

We really enjoyed our 45 minutes there. They have a room full of quilts on display - beautiful and well made. They have a room of looms where people are actively working on projects. Then they have a third room of other various crafts to look through. The attendant was very helpful in answering questions and enthusiastic about the activities that happen there. This is also an old school house so it's worth the time to see the building. We paid $4 each to get in which is fine. I'm happy to help defer the costs. Additionally there are many items to buy there. Pillowcases, children's dolls (the raggedy ann doll was most impressive), kitchen towels, hot pads, craft kits, yarn etc. Prices are mid-range but the items I looked out were very well made and would last. We now have this on our list of regular activities during our annual Tillamook trip.

We live about 12 miles away from this museum and visit it quite frequently. Many folks think it would be of interest to only women but men also will enjoy a visit to the museum. They have a wide range of different types of quilts and other craft items; many of the exhibits would be difficult to find in other museums in many communities. It is surprising to find such a museum in any community but it is supported by many artists in the area and has exhibits of artists from all over the US. It is not unusual for visitors to be able to observe artists at work on quilts or weaving projects or other art projects. Visitors to this area of Oregon should make an effort to visit this interesting museum with excellent exhibits.
