Shows change every three months, with pieces ranging from traditional American quilts to contemporary fiber art.

My husband stayed outside, studying a tour book, but I thought the La Conner Quilt and Textile Museum was very interesting, and sort of added a cultural piece to the La Conner experience. The Museum is NOT a quilt shop! It is a testament to many different types of quilts and quilters and the stories that are stitched into the... More

Love going to this museum to see award winning and exciting quilts, new or historical, machine, or by hand. And the textiles they show are equally interesting. I take all of my visitors there as exhibits change quarterly and are remarkable.

We happened to be there on a weekend they do their annual quilt exhibit. There are three floors in the house and then the whole building across full of quilts. The colors and details take your breath away. So many artistic and talented quilters

The current show of Japanese quilts was impressive. The exhibit is nicely displayed and is well lighted. Touring the mansion itself is worth the visit.

This was a great place to visit. The Japanese exhibit was aw-inspiring! I only wished there had also been some antique quilts there. Too bad that it's closed on Mondays though.

Come within the next few weeks and you will be in for a real treat. Ree Nancarrow and Charlotte Bird will have an exhibit at Maple Hall, not to be missed.

My second trip here, enjoyed it very much both times. Quilts are beautifully displayed and the building itself is worth a visit. Staff is very friendly and conscientious. Two flights of stairs can make it difficult for anyone with mobility issues. I particularly like small museums where you are able to linger and really absorb what you are seeing.

With all the positive reviews, I expected more. The two floors of the current exhibit of Japanese works were beautiful. The first floor display of recent copies of earlier quilts was not very interesting to me. As others have noted, there were very few bed sized pieces and there was a lack of handmade quilts exemplifying various styles and techniques.... More

Charming old house with every room displaying many quilts. Nicely hung and spacious. Large Japanese collection was also showing when we went.
