Along with traveling art works coming to visit once, in a while; it is a nice place to relax and view some of the local artistic works. The building is unique by itself. I enjoyed my first visit there and plan to go back again. Especially, when other displays come into town.

I appreciated visiting this art museum on a hot day in downtown and disappointing Davenport, IA. The museum, which has four floors of displays, has a lot of what you would expect for a small, depressed and uneventful city art museum. I was impressed with the exterior architecture and how it was laid out inside. There is a great view... More

Museum consists of many galleries arranged through the building with art displays everywhere including the stairways. Between permanent displays they have other displays on loan so it's never the same ol same ol. Nice gift shop and bar with café tables set out on patios to enjoy the beautiful view of the Mississippi River and Quad Cities' Centennial Bridge. Fun... More

There was little to do after my meeting was over on a Saturday late afternoon so I stopped by the Figge with a business colleague. We were so pleasantly surprised. First of all the architecture of the building is striking. Then we discovered that they had a art show from our own state's Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. The quality... More

My nieces wedding recpetion was held here and it was a beautiful space. It was a little odd to enter right into the reception area but the decorations were perfect. The wall of windows created an amazing backdrop to the festivities.

Had stopped in Davenport just to visit the Figge. Free in the summer, which was a great bonus. Very respectable general collection, jewel-like Grant Wood-themed room and excellent exhibit of American art on "paper" on loan for the summer. Convenient that I could park right in front for free. Custom built building with Mississippi River views is fabulous.

My daughter and I just happened by this place and just decided to stop in. Very glad that we did. There were so many examples of the different paintings/drawings, it was hard to choose a favorite. one could stand and gaze at the wonderous works of art for hours. It's a great place to learn art appreciation.

The Figge has some impressive works and is very easy to get around. If you want a pleasant change of pace or it's a rainy day, don't pass this up.

The museum is very large, and has a lot of different exhibits to see. Very good atmosphere, and very clean. It was laid out very well and easy to see everything.
