“Amazing quilts!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

This is indeed a small museum but always has good exhibition. Different visit, one see different quilts. True, Sue Nickels & Pat Holly's quilts are mostly by machine but one has to admire their technic and design! The ladies work there are volunteers and very helpful. We were lucky at our last visit - on a free day.

“Small but nice”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

This is not a huge museum - just 20 or 30 quilts. They are incredible in terms of design. I also liked the raffle - $1 for a chance at a gorgeous quilt - hope I win!

“Love quilts but this was boring”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Basically, it was a display of 2 ladies quilts, machine sewn, and pretty standard. A few of them had great colors, but there were only about 15 or so quilts. The entries at the Wisconsin State Fair are better than this.

“A great mix of antique and new quilts”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

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!

“Sew a little beauty”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

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!
