“Disappointed”

Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts
Ranked #5 of 19 things to do in Cedarburg
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 June 2016

There were maybe a dozen quilts on display. Having been to other quilt museums this lacked the volume and quilts. There were many more woven items then traditional quilts.

Unlike other quilt museums, WMQFA is a fiber art museum, so we exhibit textiles of all kinds, including quilts, knitted items, weavings, embroidery, and more. During your visit, the museum's exhibition was Coverlets and Stevengraphs, which is why the exhibited items were primarily woven. We try to let everyone know what the current exhibitions are in our emails, on our website, press releases, and calendars, so everyone knows what to expect. I am sorry to hear you were disappointed in the number of quilts on exhibit during your visit. Please know, you may always call or check our website to find out exactly what will be exhibited during your visit.

We visited on a Saturday when they were holding a quilting class in the main exhibit room, so we were unable to view the quilts on display, only the coverlets. There was no staff available to give us information about the museum. It was much smaller than expected and definitely not worth the $8 admission price (for one room?) It appears they are a popular quilting center for locals rather than a museum. I was looking forward to this as one of the highlights of our day in Cedarburg, but was very disappointed.

We visited the Museum of Quilts and Fabric Arts for the first time on our recent visit to Cedarburg. What a great way to learn some American History as historical data accompanies the quilts on display. It is amazing to see the excellent condition they are in with vibrant colors as they are over 100 years old.

Volunteers were very friendly and took interest in each visitor. Found the price a bit high for how small the actual museum was. If you love quilts, definitely make your way here. If you like museums, it's also a good stop.

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 the late opening notice on our website, in our e-newsletter, in our outgoing voicemail message, and on a sign on the door the week leading to the event. But unfortunately, it's not possible to catch everyone.

If you would like to come back, please contact the museum directly. I would be happy to offer you a personal tour at no charge for your trouble.
