There was a nice collection of both traditional and modern quilts. I enjoyed learning the history of them. There' a nice quilt store a couple of blocks away, too..
RMQM is physically small, exhibiting up to 30 quilts at a time. They change the exhibit every 2 months, and feature both traditional and art quilts. Nationally known quilters exhibit here, so it is not just the in house collection of traditional quilts that could be on display. Shop in the cute gift shop, and if you need a more... More
This is indeed a small museum but always has good exhibition. Different visit, one see different quilts. True, Sue Nickels & Pat Holly's quilts are mostly by machine but one has to admire their technic and design! The ladies work there are volunteers and very helpful. We were lucky at our last visit - on a free day.
Basically, it was a display of 2 ladies quilts, machine sewn, and pretty standard. A few of them had great colors, but there were only about 15 or so quilts. The entries at the Wisconsin State Fair are better than this.

Although not a quilter myself, I love the art. Art in fabric is definately what you will encounter. Exhibits change regularly and there are ongoing special shows and visitors. Another great stop in Golden, especially with your girlfriend!

Patty, a master quilter and student of Cindy Thomas.Patty gave an incredable talk that brought the lives of the women who made the quilts to life. The subtle language of symbols, fabric selection and delicate sewing was amazing in these quilts. Each quilt was like reading a story... More
Quilt enthusiasts will love the quality of these quilts and the availability for learning more of the lore through the excellent docents. Don't let the small size of the museum fool you. Gift shop is fabulous. The entire experience fits right into this adorable little town nestled in the Colorado mountains. I had a great time there.
