This is a relatively new and relatively small quilt Museum. It has a lovely display area and it's located in Winterset, around the historic Courthouse Square.

Do you like quilts? The Iowa Quilt museum is an easy way to quench your need. Inside the former JC Penny store on the square it is a chance to see a wide variety of quilts, many dating into the early 1800's. For $6 you cannot go wrong. Park on the square for free and walk right in.
