I enjoyed seeing the old and new quilt exhibits and learning some history. My husband had had enough looking after about 15 min. It is a small museum, but worth it.

The museum is in an antebellum house that also served as a hospital for wounded Confederate troops following the battle of Gettysburg. Thus the building's fixtures, floors, etc. were an extra treat. There were a mix of new and historic quilts exhibited and some special exhibits in the many roomed mansion. Covid-19 precautions were observed by staff and visitors.

Although the Museum is small but consider three floors of quilt display from local area (Shenandoah Valley) and West Virginia from different era is an impressive show. I had a wonderful conversation and great information with two staff who are working on fixing the quilts on the lower level. Wonderful place, especially if you like quilts.

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 is handicap accessible. I would check before going if stairs is a challenge for any in your party.

Thank you for your kind words! The Warren Sipe House was built in 1856 so the building is not handicap accessible. We strive to be as accommodating as possible. The main floor is accessible by an outside ramp, and the bottom floor is accessible by a side door. We have created a slide show of the upstairs quilts for those that cannot make it up the stairs to the third floor. We are really glad that you enjoyed our exhibits!

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 all which adds to the homage to the quilter. Elvis was in the spotlight on the second floor which was the entrance floor. Who knew that hound dogs, returned letters and jailhouses could look so good in stitchery? The beauty, exquisite and time-intensive details of the workmanship, and the obvious talents that made all of the quilts on all three floors--what a privilege to behold! The collection of old sewing machines made one appreciate the evolution of the modern machines that are available now. This is not a large museum but I believe that is part of the ambiance of the collection; some of the displays are changed during certain times of the year. It's a quiet and appealing place to spend some quality time with an organic art.
