One of my favorite museums is the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky. There's something for everyone, including the guys. The museum houses a collection of some 500 quilts and features rotating displays on loan from quilters and collectors around the world. They also help teachers foster an appreciation of quilt heritage in their students with annual School Block Challenge and student-friendly exhibits.
This month, the museum has been featured on Southern Living's list of 25 Best Museums of the South, joining the Kennedy Space Center and other prestigious museums. Visit quiltmuseum.org for information.
