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

What a lovely addition to our riverfront town of Davenport, Iowa! Beautiful works of art are displayed in many forms. There is always many displays that are on loan from other museums being displayed throughout the year. Everyone, even if you are not an art fanatic, you will find yourself enjoying yourself.

The Figge is a very nice addition to down town Davenport. The structure of the building is beautiful and unique. It definitely stands out when your driving around down town. This summer (2016) they are offering free admission! The exhibits change and currently they have a Wizard of Oz floor that has props, posters, and the movie playing. They also... More

A lovely museum. Open, spacious. Friendly staff. Lots of variety ... Frank Lloyd Wright, Grant Davis, western art, Spanish art, Picasso, ceramics, metal, etc. Something for everyone. Very nice opportunities for children to participate in creating art. Ample parking. Free museum. Go!

It's a very unique art museum. There are many opportunities for people to create their own art inspired by the art in the museum. Some parts may be boring for kids, but creating personal art using various elements is very appealing!

Great museum to visit, impressive selection for a smaller city art museum. We were traveling back to Ohio from being out West, and decided to stop in Davenport to see the Figge. We were not disappointed, and is worth a few hours.

I moved from Chicago Area & desperately needed an Art experience & found it here! I was driving thru Davenport & hoped to stay 4 hours, but I missed the museum lunch & guest services do not include snacks or vending machines so I was forced to walk the neighborhood but did not find anything close-by. Frustrated I had to... More
