The museum is easily accessible. The exhibit space is large, well lit and airy. The fabulous exhibits change every two months, and lectures and classes occur periodically. Check out their website for scheduling: WIQUILTMUSEUM.COM.

I was really excited about visiting the Quilt Museum. I go every year to the Wisconsin State Fair, and the quilts are one my favorite things. I was therefore quite disappointed to pay $8 to see a beautiful old barn with not much more than a dozen exhibits. There were two really nice quilts, several uninteresting sculptures, and a half dozen quilts that looked like a first effort by a 4H club. They weren't labeled very well, and the use of the cavernous space seemed inefficient. My biggest disappointment in Cedarburg.

This Museum is setup in a old barn that has been carefully contained and restored. The venue is clean and very picturesque. The large room of quilt exhibits is small but very interesting. We had an exhibit of 1920's tobacco silks re-purposed into magnificent pieces of art. They had a marvelous gift shop and let our 40 person group use the basement and ordered sandwiches for us from a local restaurant. The ladies were very accommodating. In the basement there is a display of years of sewing machines and hand looms and overall, very interesting!

I was here for a 2-day workshop, and found the restored barn to be an engineering marvel. The exterior of the barn itself is reclaimed barn-wood, and many of the original structural beams were still in place. Because the barn was going to be lifted to accommodate a complete lower level (it turns out cows don't actually need much head room!) the entire walk-out basement level had to be rebuilt, and the actual field stones from the site were incorporated in the restoration. All of that being said, if you have a quilter, or just a special someone in your life, go to the gift shop on the first floor and do some shopping. Beautiful and interesting are just 2 of the words I would use to describe it. In addition, the local Cedarburg Garden Club installs and maintains all of the gardens and they are simply gorgeous! This would also be a wonderful venue for a wedding and reception or class reunion.

Family members are quilters. I am not. Nevertheless I do attend quilt shows and enjoy seeing fine quilts and I appreciate the craftsmanship. The current show was largely comprised of some quilts but mainly odd stuff like upholstered chairs made in tribute to a person or birch baskets with porcupine quilt art. Yes that too has a place for exhibiting but I’m not sure if you are expecting to see really nicely done quilts this type of alternative exhibit will satisfy your wants.
