Learned a lot about the history of quilts as well as about items that you wouldn't necessarily think of as quilts. Very interesting and educational. Only $8. Beautiful building.

Enjoyed several exhibits on my first time visit. Will make a point to make a return trip. Nice facility & affordable ticket price. Wished there were more "souvenir" in the magnets, notebooks, kits and such. The volunteer who guided the tour was not as knowledgeable as I would have liked. Would recommend to quilters!

I thought that I would tag along with my wife. I'm glad I went. Quantity and quality of labor that the soldiers put into these quilts is astonishing. I would never do that.

I drove with a friend from KC for a day trip to see the Ken Burns exhibit and it was well worth the trip. Both the exhibit and regular galleries were enjoyable. The volunteers who lead the public tours are well informed and friendly. We also enjoyed the gift shop.

Really unique looking building, inside and out. I was there for an awards ceremony, so I didn't check out the museum itself, but I have no doubt that it would be interesting and informative. It would probably give an appreciation of quilting and its history to those that aren't interested as well.
