If you are in Paducah, this is a must see. A very large selection of quilts and only a couple of blocks off the Lower Historic District.

My wife is greatly into Quilts so I thought I would surprise her and take her to the Quilt Museum while on vacation even though it was 40 miles out of our way. Was she surprised? Yes. However, I was more surprised! What a great museum. I thought I would be bored to tears but she actually had to drag me out of there. So much history and unbelievable gorgeous quilts that you won't see ever all together in one place. Some of their quilts were over 150 years old and in great condition. I learned so much. Such a friendly staff that are very patient in answering my numerous questions.
Women who are into Quilts must seriously put this on your bucket list. Drag your husbands there, they will not be disappointed. Plus the downtown Paducah has many other historical activities including a cool biker church.

Whether your into quilts or not this is one of a kind. You can enjoy looking at award winning quilts and or learn some of the history behind them. From simple patterns made from necessity to elaborate, beautiful art work.

Modern artisitc quiting. The quilts on display are very beatiful and intricate. These are the winners of the National Quilting Show in Paducah. But if you are looking for antique or historical quilting, this was not there. This is not meant to be a complaint. Their focus is on the current and artistic.
