  • 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. It's a great place to visit and then stroll out around the shops and absorb the history around the 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.
