The docent-led tour made this visit to the museum well worth the time. I might even suggest that if you can't take the informative tour, reschedule your visit. This is NOT a quilt show. The museum's purpose is to study/compare/preserve quilts and their history. Yes,...More

This place is fantastic if you are looking to gracefully end a romantic relationship. The quilt museum is a large, beautiful, and quiet facility dedicated to quilts. Quilts are kind of like art, except they are boring and passionless. I took a girl here because...More

A very high quality display of quilter's work. Anyone interested in the art will be impressed with the displays and the facility itself. The books for sale, both new and gently used, were a plus. Lots of aids to make quilting easier and more precise.

So many lovely quilts on display with walls painted the colors that will set them off. I was amazed at the Provencal quilts from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

The Quilt House or International Quilt Study Center is a gem. With over 5500 quilts, it is a top notch museum. The galleries are large, the exhibits are thought provoking. There were four exhibits to be viewed when we visited. This place cannot be beat!

You get to see quilts from 1700's to Today. It is really amazing how intricate and beautiful the old ones are. You get to learn about material, thread, and the particulers about putting a quilt together. You may say I don't think much about that,...More
