I'm not a big fan of quilts. Go figure. But I love visiting the quilt museum which I view as an art gallery. The artists are using textiles. You can spend almost all day and not be bored at all.

Nice attraction of a distinguished group of quilters. Well represented, and excellently displayed. Well worth the price which was reasonable and affordable. Within walking distance to restaurants, so make a day of it.

There is so much talent displayed here. There is easy parking and a nice gift shop. Even if you aren't a quilter there is beautiful "art" in the quilts!

Take your time to look at the intricate work of the many quilts on display. I was amazed at the tiny details in the small quilts. A guided tour is available for a small fee.
