“World renowned museum!”

The National Quilt Museum works to advance the art of today's quilters by bringing it to new and expanding audiences worldwide.

We serve the quilting community by providing in-facility and traveling exhibits, youth and adult educational programs, and advocacy efforts.

 The National Quilt Museum is the world's largest museum devoted to quilt and fiber art. A destination for quilters and art enthusiasts worldwide, annually the Museum receive visitors from all 50 US states and over 45 foreign countries from every continent.

The Museum's in-facility and traveling exhibits are viewed by over 110,000 people per year.

In addition, over 4,000 youth and adults participate in Museum youth and adult educational opportunities on an annual basis. Located in a 27,000 square foot facility in historic downtown Paducah, Kentucky, the Museum's three galleries feature exhibits of the finest quilt and fiber art in the world.

The Museum features three exhibit galleries. The Museum's vibrant and breathtaking exhibits are rotated 8-10 times per year. The primary gallery features quilts from the Museum's collection which includes over 400 works of art. The two other galleries feature unique and diverse traveling exhibits.

 The Museum has also gained a reputation for its educational programs. Throughout the year, the Museum hosts educational programs on a diverse number of topics for quilters of all skill sets. Quilters come from all over the world to attend the Museum's educational programs taught by master quilters. The Museum's youth education programs are attended by over 4,000 young people of all ages. Several of these programs have received national media attention. 

 The School Block Challenge, sponsored by Moda Fabrics, is an annual contest in which participants are challenged to make a quilt block out of a packet of three fabrics. This program continues to be utilized by schools and community organizations as part of their art curriculums in over 20 states.

Other popular youth programs include the annual Quilt Camp for Kids, Kidz Day in the Arts, and the Junior Quilters and Textile Artists Club.

Man, these people are SERIOUS about their quilts and even more serious about NOT taking pictures of the quilts. For being someone who is generally not "into" quilts, it was actually kind of cool. Oh, and I took three pictures! Lol

This museum is wonderful. I've been twice and plan to go whenever I pass through Paducah and may even plan a destination trip there with some quilt-making relatives some time. One time I went there was a huge display of recently-made, artistic quilts. Each new one viewed made me say "wow!" louder and with more emphasis. I just couldn't believe how beautiful and intricate they were. Last week there was an amazing display of tiny quilts.
