Not much to say as most of the reviews have already said it. The Museum is phenomenal. The layout is simple and the quilts speak for themselves. I got in on the last half of a tour and it was so entertaining and informative. This has been on my bucket list since I started quilting, but any art lover would... More

Best art we've seen anywhere and we've done DC, Paris, etc. just amazing. Years of handwork goes into these museum pieces. When we were in the room with hr wooden quilt we asked to see it.. And it was what we were looking at, wow.

I visited the National Quilt Museum with my visiting sister who is a fine seamstress. Being male, I was prepared to be bored.

The quilts on display demonstrate amazing creativity and skill. Anyone interested in art needs to visit this museum and budget at least 3 hours to enjoy three textiles.

The guided tour was great. Told about the history of the museum and gave details about the various quilts in the main section. There were two more rooms of quilts to tour as well. Be sure to give yourself at least two hours.

Understated form of art. This had a pretty great variety of substance considering how small the museum is. Unfortunately, taking pictures is not allowed, but it is understandable when you see the work. Even if you are not into quilting, it is hard not to enjoy what these people made.

I have always wanted to visit this museum but usually my stops in Paducah were too brief to allow it. Finally! Hundreds of amazing quilts very nicely displayed!
