You can import the key of an account of quorum in metamask. Keys of all the accounts are available at https://github.com/jpmorganchase/quorum-examples/tree/master/examples/7nodes/keys.

In quorum 7nodes example only one account is imported at each of the seven nodes. Node 1 is configured at port 22000 and account is imported using key 1. As only one account is imported into one node you will be able to see only one account after connecting to a specific node.

As you have configured quorum on your local machine you shall use to connect to node` using metamask.

    @SurbhiAudichya, Welcome! Glad to help you. I don't know why ethereum account address is different from the address in a key store file. Let me know if you find anything. Commented Oct 10, 2018 at 8:03

    Those files are keystore wallet, the private key is encrypted, the encryption password an empty string (file passwords in parent directory). Unfortunatelly Metamask doesn't allow empty passwords and you can't open the file directly. You can open the keystore file from MEW and export the raw private key.
