This is a great place to educate yourself to an art form that is intricate, yet completely underappreciated. Is it because women would "gossip" etc. over quilting bees? The installation I witnessed last summer was nothing short of incredible; recreating parts of a topographic map...More

I am not a quilter, but I am a photographer. I love art, any kind of art. Quilts are practical art. They are often called "comforters" (although they are not precisely the same things) because they provide comfort and warmth, but they are also art....More

This museum houses a great and extensive collection of quilts. The exhibits rotate and provide a new and interesting experience with each visit. We especially enjoyed the mapping of Nebraska in quilts. Small entry fee and a nice gift shop and staff.

Three floors of quilts displayed at one time. Galleries are changed, so you won't see the same exhibit each time you visit. This museum receives on going donations of quilt collections from all over the world. It is amazing. You will not be disappointed.

Bautiful space, full of quilts from the world ... one room contained a quilt project that will expand your thinking about fiber art and quilting.

I don't quilt and loved these exhibits. As per the title this is an International Study Center. If you ever doubted that quilting is a high art form requiring technical skill, convince yourself here. Allow at least a couple of hours. Good luck deciding on...More
