This museum houses a great and extensive collection of quilts. The exhibits rotate and provide a new and interesting experience with each visit. We especially enjoyed the mapping of Nebraska in quilts. Small entry fee and a nice gift shop and staff.

Three floors of quilts displayed at one time. Galleries are changed, so you won't see the same exhibit each time you visit. This museum receives on going donations of quilt collections from all over the world. It is amazing. You will not be disappointed.

Bautiful space, full of quilts from the world ... one room contained a quilt project that will expand your thinking about fiber art and quilting.

I was disappointed by this museum. It is more of a building on the campus with a few art gallerias attached with some quilts in it. I have seen better quilts in my travels with the Amish. The quilts were mostly art style quilts and...More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express after a horrible experience at the Days Inn at the north end of Lincoln. We ate at several locations and I'm afraid I don't recall which restaurant was close to the museum. The museum and... More
