  • 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.
  • The quilts were beautiful, staff friendly and gift shop filled. Was just disappointed in the building and the poor guidance for parking. No suggestions to go anywhere else and no cafe on grounds. Was expecting more from the site.
  • Really cool place. Its a shame i couldn't take pics (not allowed). Quilting is an art and the artwork in there was AMAZING!
  • 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.
  • If you like quilts this place is a must see. Such a wonderful collection of art. Just breathtaking.
