Paid $5 for a small room of offensive, liberal slanted, mostly machine quilted and pre-printed quilts. Very offended by an anti-President Elect quilt. Very unprofessional and unpatriotic! Don't waste your money going to this place.

I was blown away by the quality of quilts at this little museum. Fascinating to think of all the hours and the vision it takes to see the outcome before you start.

It's something you throw on your bed to keep you warm, right? Used to be, but now it's an art form, too. After seeing the quilts in Paducah, KY last spring we became much more appreciative of the skill involved and the beauty of the finished work, which is far more likely to hang on a wall these days.

I don't know much about quilting but was astonished at the hand detail. Often it's good to see something you'd not usually see and this is one such site. We'll probably visit... More

On our trip, we had a quilter and she wanted to go to the Museum. She loved it. She brought a quilt kit & I can't wait for the finished quilt.

My wife is a quilter and we stop a quilt stores and Museums when we travel. The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum is very nice and worth the stop. Check their web site I heard they may be moving to a larger location.

My husband's mother and grandmother were quilters and I have learned how to sew very simple quilts. This collection blew us away. Some of the quilts are almost 200 yrs old and still so beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful and very informative. Great place to visit.

Nice, small and friendly museum. Friendly and knowledgeable docents. Really what you expect from a home-town quilt museum. There is also a nice quilt shop across the street.

Very nice greeter, knowledgeable about the exhibit. Today's exhibit was from Australia. Beautiful exquisite work. Astounding. You can take pics of the displays, but as any art exhibit, do not touch. Browse at your leisure, there are many quilting books to look through.

Lots of museums feature an exhibit on a certain topic or artist. The Quilt Museum is like a single museum exhibit. (Yes you could also call it a gallery.) The collection changes. We saw the collection that displayed quilts made entirely by men. I'm not a quilter but I can still appreciate and admire the talent involved in these tapestries.
