To our valued customers: Online orders will be temporarily suspended at this time. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause and are thankful for your understanding.

An evolution in quilt making took place during the nineteenth century. Originally intended as utilitarian  objects, pieced together from whatever scraps of cloth that were available, by the turn of the twentieth century many quilts had become largely decorative, incorporating luxurious fabrics like velvet and silks and no longer simply serving as bed coverings.

Due to the COVID-19 virus, Museum London has made the decision to close the museum to visitors and all other groups, effective Saturday, March 14 and until further notice.

We regret the impact of this decision on the individuals, families and groups who use our facilities. However, we believe that this decision is in the best interests of all the communities we serve.
