This is a nice quilt museum with a great expanse of quilts, going as far back as the Civil War era. We enjoyed it.

I came to the Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts with my Mom, and it was the perfect attraction for us. It was not a time consuming place to tour-- we spent no more than an hour in the museum, which was perfect for us as larger museums are often overwhelming or take a full day to see. This was a great break from driving and was a nice draw to the cute and artsy town of Cedarburg. The quilts in the gallery are rotating, so you may want to check ahead of time to see what will be on display while you are there. Also it will be a great place to come back to, as there will be a new display by the time I make it there next! When we went the quilts on display were all from Japan, and absolutely AMAZING. The quilts were quite stunning and all well labeled, many of the labels included what inspiration went into that particular quilt which was fun to read. There is also a loom display in the basement, which we chose not to check out due to time constraints. The gift shop was also very cool with many tempting items. If you are interested in fiber arts or enjoy art in general you should definitely check this place out!

I've known about this place since it's beginning, but sometimes it's hard to be a tourist in your own town and visit what is just around the corner. Luckily we had guests in town and we took them here. It is nice that their exhibit space changes from time to time, so I can go back and not feel that I've seen it all already. It is truly amazing what people are able to create.

People who love fabric, are awed by handwork, or just love the culture and joy of any type of needlework will love this place. The changing exhibits are always lovely. The gift shop has some very unique items, including a "Zen slate" for water words. Enchanting idea.

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.
