  • We felt we didn't get value for our admission price as there were only a handful of quilts on display, all of a similar style and by the same maker. It would be a good idea to check what's on display ...  read more »
  • I was expecting a larger "museum" & for $8 admission to look at 1 small room of jazz themed quilts & 6 wedding quilts I was disappointed. They also had a handful of wedding dresses thru the ages displ...  read more »
  • I HATE to give this museum a bad review, because it seems to be ran by a passionate, dedicated group of volunteers. However, I'd read online that they had vintage quilts and textiles, and I was shocke...  read more »
  • I am a quilter and admire quilts and eagerly went to the Kaffe Fassett show, but was quite disappointed with my visit. The museum is quite small, so even if the show is interesting, there's not a lot to see. Also the place is hard to find from on-line directions, and we spent almost as long trying to get there once we were in SanJose as we spent at the exhibit. The final nail was that we had planned to go for "First Friday Free" but were told (rather rudely) that the first Friday in July was not included as a free Friday, and they made us pay the $6.50 Senior fee. On the whole I would recommend that you skip this and go to a local guild's show instead.
  • Lovely quilts that show immaculate sewing and artistic sense. These are wonderful and, I feel, are often ignored by people in this rush world. Tech is great, but this is old tech and is lovely!
  • I really enjoyed my visit (back in october 2015)! The handquilted exhibition was awesome, the one about art in prison really made me think so many things, like freedom through creativity... Staff was super nice, the store was cool, the only thing I didn't like that much was the price. Overall, would recommend if you are into textiles.
  • Wonderful showcase for all types of textile arts.
  • Not a very exciting place, though there are a few beautiful quilts. Maybe this place just isn't for me.
