Experiencing More of Kentucky

Thursday, November 10, 2022

Today we visited the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky.  In all honesty we went to be the eyes for our daughter and to share with her pictures and video of the quilts we were going to see. We went to share our visit with our readers that quilt and love to create. When we got there, we instantly found ourselves immersed in the quilt world. The National Quilt Museum is an art museum that collects and presents the finest work made by today’s quilters from America and around the world. The museum features three galleries of art that rotate throughout the year in a 27,000 square foot facility.

Gerry and I were captivated by all the quilts of new and years past- even those from the 1800's were among the collection. There is just so much talent that is exhibited and we had such an appreciation of these forms of art which have taken countless hours to perfect. We were quite glad we stopped to see, and would highly recommend for those coming to the area to make a stop. Easy access, plenty of parking, and as well located in the historic downtown core and near the waterfront area which also offers a walk to the Floodwall Murals .

On our way back to the RV after our visit, we stopped at the Wacinton Totem Sculpture at the Bob Noble Park. Another great Peter "Wolf" Toth creation- one of his many!
