There are some real artists that worked on the collection of this collection of quilts. Much like any museum, you need to take your time to study the depth of the work. The house has had some renovations recently but I am not sure everything...More

Charming, old school historical building (was Warren Sipe's home back in the day) that was well-repurposed into this delightful gem of a small museum. It's creaky in places, has paint peeling off some of the walls, a slightly musty smell of history in the air...More

Thank you for your comments! We were also amazed by the Elvis collection when we first saw it!

There was an exhibition of Elvis Presley quilts when we visited and it was fascinating to see his songs and his life in stitchery. There were also regular quilts and I liked them best of all. I'm glad we decided to check this out and...More

I love this little gem of a museum. In an old house with regularly changing exhibits. A bit of quiet reprieve for me during a busy vacation. It wasn't my first visit and won't be my last.

Wonderful beautiful quilts that you can take pictures of. Wheelchair accessible on the first and bottom floor. The staff was very nice and helpful. It was easy to push grandmother's chair through the rooms and the bathroom is accessible. Highly recommend.

We do not have an elevator in our building. We do have a ramp and a side door for access to the middle and bottom floor exhibits. We have a video slideshow of the top floor exhibits.
