A very nice selection of local cultural artists and on occasion special events from traveling exhibitions. Great outreach program for kids including a lego imagination area and art classes to inspire the next generation of artists. Great for the kids to learn more about culture and art!

I wasn't sure what to expect from this museum, but I was pleasantly surprised. There were several traveling exhibits, but the one I liked best was called "Picturing the Prairie" about the tall grass prairie that used to cover parts of Iowa. It included videos and bird calls, along with photographs and other hands-on materials. The museum also houses permanent... More

If you looking for a nice place to take the family in the QC, Figge is a great place to begin. Always check to see what the have on exhibit weather it's something visiting for a short time, or the museum's full time exhibits. Go and enjoy!

I actually went to hear a speaker on photography. Facility was excellent. It just happened to be open for children that evening and many kids were creating crafts. The place is amazing

This has nice collections of Regionalists, Haitian art, colonial era Mexican stuff. The Frank Lloyd Wright furniture is nice as well. A bit of a prudish collection, missing anything related to eroticism and romance.

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.

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