Was in Davenport to see the Impressionist exhibit at the Figge. Tightly curated collection from the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Community sponsors unexpectedly covered admission fees while we were there. Overall a small, interesting local museum with a nice collection of regional art and a...More

We went to view the French Modernist art exhibit. Was disappointed in it. The advertised Monet and Manet. There was only one of each. A few Renoir and the rest were very obscure artists. The John Bloom "Close to Home" was much more interesting and...More

We recently spent a great afternoon at this museum in the Quad Cities. I was most excited about the facility itself, which has a great view of the Mississippi and spacious modern exhibit space. I liked that they built the facility from scratch--it was not...More

Admission for seniors 60 and over is $6.00. Sometimes a local corporation will underwrite free admission for a month or two but I think that's not in effect now. Their website has tons of info if you care to check it out... More

It really depends on what you want to see....I would say it takes at least 2 hours to see it all and enjoy the view of the Mississippi river.....
