  • The Virginia Quilt Museum is the biggest disappointment of 2018. My husband tried to bring me on Saturday for my birthday and despite having hours listed on their website and Google indicating it was open, we arrived at the front door of the museum to find it closed. The New England Quilt Museum and Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum are way more reliable.
  • Awesome place. So many beautiful quilts and antique machines.
  • I visit whenever I am in Harrisonburg! This is a gem. They have more than Gramma's quilts; very interesting and inspiring.
  • Great place to visit if you are interested in Quilts. They even have a modern quilts display. The small building looks deceptive, its really pretty big inside and there are lots of quilts.
  • The quilts on display are very good quality, some 100 years old, others more recent. They also have a very impressive needlework display.
