Traveling Exhibits

The National Quilt Museum is home to one of the most admired collections of modern quilt and fiber art in the world.  As part of our mission to bring quilting to audiences around the world, the museum offers quilts from our collection to qualified museums and events throughout the year. Our traveling exhibits are made up of the same great quilts that have made our Paducah experience a TripAdvisor seven-time Certificate of Excellence winner and two time TripAdvisor Hall of Fame winner.  Museums and events that host our exhibits consistently see above average attendance and media coverage.  





“We have thoroughly enjoyed the holiday themed quilt exhibition that traveled to our History Center site this season.  Hundreds of people traveled to the History Center to visit the collection.  It has been an honor to display and showcase this extraordinary collection.”

"It was a great honor to have the collection of quilts from The National Quilt Museum.
Thank you so much for giving a chance to have them here in Yokohama, Japan. Our visitors were very impressed with all of the quilts. Some people came every day to look at them. Thank you very, very much from all Japanese quilters."
