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.

The Figge Art Museum is a much nicer museum than I expected for a city of Davenport’s size. The building is very attractive and functional. The Figge has a wide variety of interesting exhibits but of limited depth. I was surprised to see both a...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.....
