The National Quilt Museum pays homage to America's roots and showcases the country's finest quilt making. The permanent collection of more than 300 quilts is exhibited in a rotating schedule in the large, central gallery, which features 39 movable walls to display fully extended quilts for maximum impact. You'll notice that exhibits highlight color, technique, and craftsmanship. Fiber art is showcased in another gallery and honors the quilt-making practice as an art form.

This is a great visit. What a fabulously curated collection. The temporary installations Southern Quilts and Quilt Block challenge were wonderful. Vastly different but exceptional. I wondered why the.... more »
Amazing displays of a good variety of styles. Spent almost 3 hours and it was well worth the stop. Don't miss the wood quilt in the conference room or the gift shop. Will visit again! more »
I am not a quilter, but my wife is. It was her idea to visit the museum. The quilts displayed showed the talents of many people and covered a wide variety of designs. The one i found most interesting had signatures of famous people from my life including presidents and their wives, actors, scientists, musicians, astronauts, and others. Even our grandchildren enjoyed seeing the various quilts and selecting their favorites. The gift shop was also popular with them.
Beautiful quilts adorn the walls of this museum. Some very old with historical or meaningful significance. Some are past winners from our National American Quilters Society Show and Contest. A great place to bring a family or a group; small or large for a visit. They have a nominal fee to tour the museum. Do plan to stay for some time to take in all the quilts and great history behind them!
