  • I was dubious, not being a quilt fan. However, this turned out to be one of the most fun things we did in Paducah. Highly recommended. I would argue, though, that a lot of what they have on display would not qualify as quilts but as high-quality fiber art pieces.

  • Expensive but the quilts are beautiful. So much work has gone into them.
  • Awesome Displays and informative staff. I could visit often if I lived in the area!
  • Really neat place to visit for a few hours. Even though it's a quilt museum you don't really have to be into quilts to enjoy it. The art and craftsmanship of the pieces is awesome.
