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

Take a minute to step into a cool, beautifully lit barn with so many attractive displays. Wall hangings, quilted pieces, ever changing collections on show. As a plus, the Museum gift shop is a treasure trove of those wonderful, hand-made items you have your eye out for. It is so accessible, an interlude of quiet calm in an otherwise hectic... More

The curator was very friendly. there were a lot of contemporary quilts and some art quilts to review. they were a little dull in color for my taste but ok if you like pastels. The bard where the quilts hang is quite impressive to see.

Our neighbor builds quilts. We like to find things she might be able to use to encourage her quilt pursuits.There was an international quilt display going on while we were there. I took pictures (after asking if it was okay), and sent them to my neighbor via my smart phone.I found it quite interesting, and would love to go back... More

My daughter and I made a detour to visit this attraction while in Cedarburg for a long "girls" weekend. We walked into the museum and found that it was largely a small collection of clothes/cloths that were handwoven accompanied by a small gift shoppe with books on fibres/weaving etc. but truthfully, there was just not enough to warrant paying a...

My sister makes quilts, so on a day-trip to Cedarburg I insisted we find this museum, even though it was late afternoon and we were weary. We were greeted by a very friendly woman who offered to give us a quick history of the place and answered our questions. We opted not to do the museum itself, but enjoyed the... More
