The National Quilt Museum supports the sustainability and growth of today’s quilting community by bringing the work of today’s quilters to new audiences worldwide. The museum is a 501c3 nonprofit organization primarily funded through the generosity of people and companies passionate about quilting.



With more than 150 quilts always on exhibit, children can explore the maze of gallery space with each turn bringing visions of pandas, horses, airplanes and cool geometric shapes! We offers a variety of fun educational offerings throughout the year.
