Great place to relax, and enjoy. I love all the interactive things you can do with your children, or grandchildren. It's always changing. A great place to come and experience art of all kinds.

Amazing museum. They had a lot of amazing pieces. I try to go to the Figge everytime I am in town. They usually get some really cool traveling displays. Definitely worth the trip to downtown Davenport.

We enjoyed the museum. It is rather small and we went through it in about 1 1/2 hours including the special exhibit we especially wanted to see and the gift shop. The gift shop was quite good. There was a lot of modern art.

They had an exhibit of "Where the Wild Things Are" book and author Maurice Sendak. There were some pop culture exhibits and some great historical paintings.

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.....
