The National Quilt Museum is an art museum that exhibits fiber art and quilting from around the world. It is the only museum in the United States dedicated to quilts and quiltmakers.

The museum exhibits a rotating selection from the museum’s collection of over 600 quilts. There is also dedicated exhibit space for rotating fiber art exhibits. 

The museum offers educational opportunities and hosts forums and conferences celebrating quilt projects from across the country.

In 2008, the U.S. Congress designated the museum as “The National Quilt Museum” of the United States, bringing recognition to the quality and significance of the institution.

The museum’s Mission is:

“The National Quilt Museum promotes the growth and expansion of quilting by
bringing the art form to new audiences around the world through exhibitions,
education programs and quilt preservation efforts and advocacy.”
