Many beautiful quilts on display and we enjoyed seeing the variety of quilts. Each one was unique, it was hard to select a favorite. Gift shop was "ok", we came for the exhibit.

The quilts were great. But the people running it weren't friendly. There is a Japanese exhibition now with some of their best quilters. Well worth seeing. The outside is an old German farm from 1850.

For any quilter or anyone just interested in the history of quilts this is a gem of a museum. There is also a very nice gift shop with lots of great local talent for sale

WMQFA is a quilter's paradise, but that is not all! Find a variety of rotating fiber arts exhibits, classes for all ages, fun events for everyone, a great gift shop, and an event space that can be used for workshops to weddings.

Came to see the On Death exhibit as well as the lace. The quilts were magnificent art pieces and the lace was fantaastic. The ladies working there were very helpful, and the space itself is open, airyy and really comfortable. I look forward to returning.
