Visited the museum on the Friday after Thanksgiving -- a great time to go since most other humans were busy shopping. Lovely museum, wonderful setting, well displayed exhibits. This was my 2nd visit with many years in between but I enjoyed it very much. To me, this is a centerpiece of the apparent revitalization of the downtown.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the permanent collection here. It is a very sophisticated museum for this little city.

Ever-changing exhibits, ever-changing views of the majestic Mississippi River .. The Figge is a worldclass museum designed to view art in a stunningly modern setting. There are surprises around every corner, every stairwell, so be certain to take your time and wander everywhere. Return worthy? Absolutely!

My wife really wanted to get to Davenport in time to spend a couple of hours in the Figge Museum. Particularly she wanted to see "Portrait of Maquoketa". We were driving in from northern Indiana, so time was of the essence. After a quick lunch downtown, we came to the museum. The first thing to strike us was the building... More

We spent a few hours in this great museum. The exhibit they have right now about the town of Maquoqata is fabulous! Will be there till January. Don't miss it.

Yes, Davenport gives you world class art fro Rembrandt to Local artists. We missed the Wizard of Oz art work but the Portraits exhibit is just wild. Never saw anything like it. It's even hard to describe: interesting, captivating portraits on one side, landscape on the other. Great docent tour

I was here to attend a conference and also spent some time looking at exhibits. It's a beautiful building, and the Wizard of Oz exhibit was great. They even had Oz things to buy in the gift shop.
