Don’t pre-purchase tickets
Jun 2021 • Friends
Just an FYI to not pre-purchase tickets for admission online. Never received a confirmation email that included my admission information. The museum apparently has no way of searching for purchase information. I showed my transaction hx that verified my purchase (which didn’t include my confirmation number) but the staff still required I purchase a new ticket to enter the museum. Disappointed with how this matter was handled. The $16 dollars was definitely not worth the one room of quilts.

Old barn fabulously remodeled.
Jan 2020
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.

Save your $8
Oct 2019 • Friends
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.

Beautiful Setting!
Jun 2019 • Friends
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!

Beautiful restored barn, but go for the gift shop!
Jun 2019 • Business
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.

Depends on the exhibit
Mar 2019 • Couples
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.

A treat for the eyes.

A treat for the eyes. A beautifully restored barn that houses some extordinary quilts. Every few months the exhibit changes so always worth a check. They also hold classes in fiber arts plus they use the floor space for yoga classes. A small gift shop with unique items. Very reasonably priced.

Quilters heaven
Aug 2018 • Couples
This was my second time visiting- stopped in to see the japanese exhibit and am so glad I took the time to stop. Wonderful exhibit in the barn, displayed with good lighting and ease of viewing. I enjoyed seeing the wide variety of interpretation for quilt making and found the staff friendly and willing to answer questions. The room is large enough to allow folks to move easily around the exhibit without feeling crowded or intrusive. I wish I could have seen the back of some of the quilts to understand the technique but they are hung so that is nearly impossible- argh. Overall an interesting exhibit and a lovely museum.

Excellent Exhibit
Sep 2018 • Couples
If you are a quilt lover, this is a good place to add to your Wisconsin itenary. The featured exhibit during my visit was 30 Japanese quilt award winners. They were outstanding!

I only wish that the museum also featured historic quilts from the State of Wisconsin. I would have liked to compare them to our early pioneer quilts in Kansas.

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.
