The Figge Art Museum (563 326 7804)is located in downtown Davenport on the Mississippi River. Be sure and eat lunch there [the fish tacos are not mild they are not with hot chiles!] The show there to mid February (better check the date of closing) PORTRAIT OF MAQUOKETA is absoutely worth the trip. This show has been in Washington DC... More

Daughter was in town and she loves art. We went to the museum and was surprised for a somewhat of a small town it had a lot to offer. We enjoyed all the different displays and was glad we took time to visit. The workers were knowledgable.

I truly enjoyed the permanent collection, but the temporary ones were breathtaking in their perspective and diversity. The Portrait of Maquoketa was fascinating and is a must see. Thank you for showcasing it! The collection of pieces by local art students was also wonderful. Thank you!

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.

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
