The largest quilt and fiber art museum in the world, the National Quilt Museum showcases breathtaking exhibitions in nearly 30,000 square feet of contemporary gallery space. Visitors from every continent and all 50 states marvel at the artistry of the Museum’s 320-piece collection of contemporary quilts and ever changing touring and thematic exhibitions that celebrate traditional and nontraditional quiltmaking methods. The Museum collection features a vast array of fiber art by internationally renowned quilt artists including French quilter Inge Mardal, Shirley P. Kelley and Sue Benner.
Expanding the vision and advancing the art, the Museum seeks to educate, promote and honor today’s quiltmaker. Workshops taught by expert instructors including Diane Gaudynski, Pat Holly, Sharon Schamber and Denyse Schmidt provide diverse learning opportunities for quilters of all skill sets. Youth education programs including annual School Block Challenge and Quilt Camp nurture a new generation of fiber artists.
The St. Louis Post Dispatch praised the Museum, noting that “it’s not that different than going to the art museum in Chicago...it's all so unexpected.” The Museum has also received praise in dozens of national publications including Forbes, The Wall Street Journal and Southern Living.
Mon.-Sat., 10 AM-5 PM; open Sundays March to November, 1-5 PM Museum Admission: $11 adults, $10 seniors (60 & over), $5 students. Free admission to The Quilt Museum Shop
