If you are an art lover, this unique and inspiring Museum is just for you. New England Quilt Museum which offers an educational tour to visitors, is located in downtown and was built in 1987 to continue the artistic legacy of quilts. For fabric art or art lovers, at this museum, you will see displays, exhibitions and a few historic quilts which are of fine quality. The museum also displays quilts dated two centuries ago, which can be quiet a pleasing view. While you’re there, also check out the library for great deals on books – it is worth a stop. Some of the art is very graphical and colorful, which are fabulous, so do spend some time appreciating those art pieces. This museum is open to the public across all age groups.

  • A must see! You will not be disappointed. Would love to go back and see the quilts again. Fabulous!!! Go before the show comes down. An intimate museum with a generous size quilt library. Friendly staff. Stocked shop with grab bags for $3-8. Fun. Pictured are one of a great collection not to be missed!!! A jewel of a museum, introducing a folk art form of great beauty. Saw 2 great shows, including one on gun ownership & gun violence: kudos! Extensive museum shop.

  • Several good exhibits, including different mediums of art quilting, thought provoking exhibit on guns/gun violence and miniature quilts. The gun exhibit wasn't ideally what we would've preferred to have seen, however the other exhibits were wonderful. It is a nice little museum, honoring, celebrating and preserving our craft. Will definitely go back for future exhibits. Very reasonably priced.

  • The New England Quilt Museum has some truly amazing historical and contemporary pieces; however, my heart sunk when viewing the piece, "Village Nucleus", an African style quilt created by a white woman. There is a true cultural history of African American quilts as well as a number of black quilters that could display their own cultural pieces. Although the quilt was wonderfully crafted, it stood Iout abrasively. I couldn't help but notice the lack of diverse contemporary quilters represented in the current exhibition room.

  • The temporary display had the theme of 'Threads of Resistance'. If you like and/or support Donald Trump, I would not recommend seeing this part. There was a separate section of the 'Threads of Resistance' that was borderline pornographic. If one dislikes Donald Trump, this could be for you. Personally,

  • A bit disappointed. Thought it would be more extensive. Friendly staff, though.
