San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles
San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles in San Jose
The first museum in the United States to focus exclusively on quilts and textiles as an art form, the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles, was founded in 1977. With compelling exhibitions of historical and contemporary textiles, engaging gallery walks and artist talks for adults, and a highly successful educational outreach program for K-12 students, we aim to increase the publicís awareness, understanding, and appreciation of quilts and textiles as a form of artistic and cultural expression that peoples worldwide have practiced for thousands of years.


Location and Hours
The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is located in the heart of San Jose's SoFA District at:

520 South First Street
San Jose, California

The Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday 10am to 5pm. On the first Friday of each month the Museum is also open from 8pm to 11pm along with other museums and art galleries in the SoFA. Admission is Free on First Fridays.

The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles has a mission to promote the art, craft and history of quilts and textiles.

Textile art transcends cultural, ethnic, age and gender boundaries and encompasses traditional as well as contemporary forms. The museum provides a serious venue for all artists working with textiles, filling a void left by larger institutions with a narrower view of what defines artistic expression. Its exhibits and programs promote the appreciation of quilts and textiles as art and provide an understanding of their role in the lives of their makers, in cultural traditions, and as historical
