“Closed-so sad.”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

I was really looking forward to seeing the quilt museum. After all, this is Lancaster the world headquaters of the quilt LOL! Apparently they have turned the building into a wedding venue and are no longer open to the public. What a shame that the Esprit collection of Amish quilts is no longer open for public view. I did go to the quilt museum in Intercourse just down the road. It's more of a quilt shop with a museum upstairs but they do have some stunning work to look at.

“Waaay Overpriced”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

$6 per person and they had like 15 quilts and a hokey holidays-thru-the-decades temporary exhibit. Not worth a penny more than $3. Save your money and keep walking.

Borning. It has like 20 quilts. If you like quilts, fine. But a real snooze fest!

“heartbreak that it's closing”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

this wonderful museum, which owns and displays the Esprit collection of Amish quilts, is closing at the end of the month. What a loss for Lancaster and quilt lovers everywhere. Loss of funding and overbuilding apparently did it in. the quilts are exquisite. If you can get in before they close, do it.

“Lancaster Christmas”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

Located in a former bank building, this is a must for non-quilters and quilters alike. The quilt collection is stunning and so is the Christmas display. Most of our group ended up buying Christmas decorations.
