Sorry I spent the time & money to go here. I recommend people save theirs, support your local quilt guild show instead. I was there a few years ago, but they have moved locations, downsized considerably. Only about 16-20 quilts there - which were amazingly beautiful - and although their brochure mentions 450 quilts in their collection, none are on display. You can view them on a website - which of course can be done from home.

This museum has a much more intimate feel to it, and allows you to get up close and personal to the exhibits. Exhibits change regularly, and include everything from 'quilts by men' to some historically rare (and important) pieces. Friendly docents give free tours -- extremely helpful for learning more about the quilts' style, makers and importance. RMQM would give any gallery or museum in the area a run for its money, in terms of quality and graphic presence. (In fact, most don't have the high standards of quilts seen here.) Take a minute to visit the store, as well.
A great place to spend a morning or an afternoon -- tie it in with a visit to the gallery of Quilter's Newsletter, just down the road in Golden.
