ABOUT THE MUSEUM
The Virginia Quilt Museum is located in Harrisonburg, 130 miles west of Washington, DC. It was founded in 1995 and designated the Official Quilt Museum of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Nestled in the picturesque Shenandoah Valley, the museum is dedicated to preserving, celebrating, and nurturing Virginia's quilting heritage. Three floors of exhibits feature a rotation of quilts from a permanent collection of nearly 300, along with traveling exhibitions from across the United States. The beautiful antebellum Warren-Sipe House, donated to the museum by the city of Harrisonburg, serves as its home and offers a distinctive backdrop for the showcased themes.

The Museum Shop is a unique experience where a variety of artwork by Shenandoah Valley and other Virginia artists may be found. The Museum Shop also has a wide array of special items for quilters and non-quilters alike. Visiting the Museum Shop is free and a delightful place to shop for gifts for any occasion.

Name another quilt museum that has a jail – The Virginia Quilt Museum has a jail cell in its lowest level. In 1993, the house was used as temporary quarters for the Circuit Court of Rockingham County while the court building was being renovated. To accommodate court proceedings, a jail holding cell was built. When the museum took possession of the house in 1995, the jail was left intact!
