Just recently visited. Wonderful Wizard of Oz display; people of ages will enjoy this. Also many hands-on activities for children...make/take, giant legos, computer games, etc. I might add that the amazing lighted corn display at the elevator entry is out of this world. That alone is worth a trip to this gold mine of a find the beautiful Quad-Cities!! I... More

We visited while in the Quad Cities. Riverfront views, and great exhibits made it a fun stop. Recommend this if you have a couple of days in QC to see local art.

It was an enjoyable visit. Probably not something we will do again. The European collection was nice. If you have a couple of hours to fill and enjoy regional art I would recommend it. Not something I would build a visit around though.

There is no better feeling than a chance discovery of a world class art museum in the least expected place. Don't take that wrong Davenport, we still love you, but mercy me! Once inside, you might as well be at the MOMA or the Whitney and I've been to both so I can say that with confidence. We didn't know... More

This is a really nice museum, and admission is free through the summer. Special exhibition included "Everything that is Wizard of Oz." Also great black and white David Plowdon photo exhibition along with many other beautiful works of art. The place is large and spacious and not too overcrowded with tourists. They have a lovely upscale cafe that serves a... More

They have a great variety of art styles. Wonderful collection. The Tiffany stained glass window was my favorite item. Maybe not the best for little kids but for those a little older it would be a great family activity. We had coffee in the cafe and it was excellent with delightful staff. Made for a great date.

A great museum with lots of different exhibits that are changing. I went to the Lego Building exhibit and it was incredible. Afterwards browsed the art there - which I always enjoy seeing. Staff is very friendly and helpful
