It was okay... $6 admission fee and you get to see some nice quilts
All I can summarize is Wow! This museum is amazing. A bit overwhelming as there are so many quilts on display. We spent almost 2 hours here and enjoyed everything. First, they have a free parking lot that was big enough for our travel trailer. We stopped here while driving from Grand Island to Omaha. The exhibits are excellent and the museum has many old (my favorite) quilts from the late 1800s through to contemporary quilts of 2020. The building is beautiful and the quilts are displayed beautifully. The gift shop has many quilt and sewing related items plus scarves, towels and jewelry. Totally worth it!
My wife loved this place. She said it was one of the best parts of our trip. If you like quilts you need to stop.
