The San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles also houses a permanent collection of Quilts & Textiles comprised of 850 items, including historic quilts, contemporary art quilts, and textile-based art forms, as well as costumes and garments from world cultures. Formed in 1977, the Museum’s collection has gained distinction for its’ unique art and material culture collection both locally and nationally.
