The museum itself is well maintained, beautiful, and in a great location. However, the exhibits are small. Floor 4 had barely anything to it. A few wall pictures some of which were inappropriate for children. Floor 3 was the same with a few hanging pieces of friut art work. Floor 2 had a lot going on. Lots of beautiful paintings... More

Only paid $7 to enter the museum and found it to have a great array of art to enjoy. Actually didn't intend to visit but found myself walking by, liked the architecture of the exterior and continued to the interior. Spent a few hours of the afternoon enjoying the museum. Perfect size and great price. Easy to see everything in... More

We go periodically to see what is new. The last time we went we saw a special Folk Art display and a movie about the Orphan Trains. I am always astounded at the modern art piece entitled Black. $10 would be to much to pay for this piece. We always get a chuckle when we view this piece. They do... More

Davenport has a gem. The building is impressive but inside the art collection is amazing! A large diverse American collection with works by Grant Wood, Andrew Wyeth, James McNeill Whistler, Ansel Adams and many others caught my attention but with over 4000 works of art there is something for everyone.

There are more than exhibits at the Figgi. There are programs and fun things, free things and great gift options in the gift shop - my only disappointment is that there isn't an operational cafe. Free Thursdays after 5pm...the café is open, full bar and always a (free) program in the lobby. We recently attended a PechaKucha. Prior to the... More

A wonderful addition to this city! Nice Grant Wood exhibit when we visited. Start at the top floors and work your way down. The second and first floors have quite a bit to see. The gift shop is really excellent!

This was my second trip to Figge. I am really into architecture so I was excited about David Chippefield’s building. From the outside, the all glass building is stunning. It does not blend in with downtown Davenport, so it is kind of an oddity, but it gets your attention. The inside I still find disappointing. The layout is just not... More

FIGGE was everything i had hoped it would be and more. Each gallery has its own unique ambience and the collections and exhibits, both permanent and temporary are richly rewarding to see. There is work by local/regional artists as well as diverse national and international individuals and groups. The hands-on areas for children and families are rife with engaging projects... More
