  • The museum was closed at 8AM. Nice large park with great views in the area. Enjoyed stretching my legs and hiking in the area. There was a farmers market across the street in the parking lot setting up.
  • Sounds boring but was worth seeing, very interesting work and historical quilts. Would recommend going once. You would need to be really into quilts to visit a second time.
  • I'm a quilter, so it was a Mecca for me. My husband was dreading the visit, but found he really enjoyed the beautiful artworks on display. A must see for anyone interested in fabric art.
  • Beautiful exhibits with lots of background information about each quilt. And very helpful docents if you have other questions.
  • It is amazing what quilters can do with a needle and thread. They are beautiful!
