Probably more for your quiltmakers but for a small fee it was quite interesting for almost anyone. Stories behind the quilts, both historic and personal, made the exhibits.

They have a great deal of information and variety of completed quilts to view. The staff although small is very helpful and friendly. We found plenty of parking in the area. They allow limited photography of quilts

We arrived just after closing, but the staff re-opened and let us see the special exhibit. Staff was awesome and it is well worth a stop!

I think it's only for people who really are into quilting. Very small and the $7 paid are more a donation because there's really not much to see!

The rotating displays have been fascinating and varied, from historical collections to women's current issues, to quilts commemorating our National Parks. Each visit yields a different experience. Check the website to see the topic of the current collection on show, and when the next arrives.

Walked in here while I was strolling around downtown. It's like a little museum. Really friendly people at the museum.
