If you're into quilting this is definitely a "bucket list" visit. I only stopped in to ask for directions but was intrigued by the wide variety of quilts and displays they had so spent most of the morning looking through the museum.

What a tribute to the beauty of quilting! The displayed quilts are presented very well and the number are limited so we didn't feel overwhelmed with seeing too many. Jewel is a great receptionist and the friendly docents answered all of our questions very well.

I was thankful that the Quilt Museum was open on Sunday. It was a great experience. I do wish there was more of a variety of styles. I'm a beginning intermediate, and I did not feel represented, just overwhelmed.

We have a truck and RV parking lot on second street behind the museum. As long as there are places available you should be fine. RV's park back there every day.
