Hidden gem!

It is a wonderful place to take a look back at our history in the fiber arts. It is a hidden gem in Cedarburg.

I'm very sorry that the museum was closed when you visited. We had a special artist program and opened late as a result. I know how frustrating it can be to drive somewhere and look forward to seeing a museum and not be able to get in. We did try to let people know we'd be opening late by posting... More

Beautiful building and grounds even when covered with snow. Wool show runs another week and was definitely worth the visit. Historic quilts as well as more recent items. Great gift shop included books, ornaments, bags and all sorts of hand crafted things. Admission seemed a bit pricey at $8.

This is an old barn made into an exquisite display venue for quilts of all types. The current show was focused on items made from wool. There was a mitten knitting class taking place on a lower level as well while we were there.

Really enjoyed the exhibit and had a tour by a very knowledgeable guide, who was also the owner of many of the items in the collection. Not just quilts but other fabric arts also. Plus a gift shop. They also have classes.

There is something here for everyone even if you are not into quilts. The quilts displayed both antique and 'modern' were eye popping and well displayed. The gift shop had an amazing array of hand crafted items for sale. The curator led us on a tour of the German farm and explained the plans for renovating and using the old... More

A nice way to spend an hour or more depending on your level of interest. I am not a quilter but still enjoyed the exhibit. Very nice displays of both contemporary and antique quilts when I visited. The museum is located in a restored barn on a former farm and is only a few minutes from the shops of Cedarburg.... More
