The lady whose collection forms the basis of this exhibit did a great job. There are many quilts from the late 1800s in excellent condition on display, and the variety and quality are quite good. Interspersed with these are new creations by master quilters (Paducah award-winners). Not much interpretation here, but honestly, if you're stopping at the quilt museum, you pretty much know what you're looking at! The gift shop was also bigger than expected and very cute, with plenty of fun gift ideas, as well as quilts available to purchase. Highly recommend if you are a sewer!

Although not a quilter myself, I love the art. Art in fabric is definately what you will encounter. Exhibits change regularly and there are ongoing special shows and visitors. Another great stop in Golden, especially with your girlfriend!

Very interesting display. We learned a great deal about the history of crazy quilts. The sewing was outstanding. The lecture we heard about the history, etc. was very informative.

Unbelievable crazy quilts from the Private Collection of Patty and Allen Brown. Patty, a master quilter and student of Cindy Thomas.Patty gave an incredable talk that brought the lives of the women who made the quilts to life. The subtle language of symbols, fabric selection and delicate sewing was amazing in these quilts. Each quilt was like reading a story about the woman's life and her family. This show demonstrates why Crazy Quilts belong in major museums like the Denver Art Museum, because they hold so much information about the lives of those who lived so long ago and had so much to share. It is exciting to know the art form continues to today.

Quilt enthusiasts will love the quality of these quilts and the availability
for learning more of the lore through the excellent docents.
Don't let the small size of the museum fool you.
Gift shop is fabulous. The entire experience fits right into this adorable
little town nestled in the Colorado mountains.
I had a great time there.
