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. The museum was designed by quilt-makers to create a space that best suited the presentation of their work.

  • Kentucky hospitality! The staff is so helpful! Wonderful environment. Beautiful selection of quilts displayed. Seating around the gallery for enjoyment amplified. Clean bathrooms, lovely grounds. Diverse selection available in gift shop.
  • Not being a quilter myself I would never have believed the amazing artwork that can be produced through this art medium if I hadn't visited the National Quilt Museum. Myself and my two kiddos (11 & 6) all really enjoyed ourselves at the museum. I highly recommend visiting.
