“Nice art museum”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

We have been meaning to visit for several years. This weekend we finally had time opportunity for a visit. What a treat. Maybe we were lucky on the exhibits currently on display, but we loved the exhibits. The museum has a much larger exhibit space than I have come to expect from a city the size of Davenport. Exhibits in any museum change over time, so there isn't really any point in praising this exhibit or that exhibit, just overall we applaud the choice of exhibits the museum had on display.

“Don't miss this museum”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Gorgeous building with some very interesting exhibits. Don't miss the Grant Wood self portrait. Nice gift shop as well. Only complaint, wish they had art postcards of more of their work, no William Merritt Chase or Henry Raeburn.

“Surprisingly nice”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

The Figge has quite a collection for a small town art museum. The temporary exhibits are usually interesting as well, with a mix of local and youth talent as well as more well know artists.

“Wish we could give the Figge six stars!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Cannot say enough good things about the Figge! We absolutely loved it! Permanent exhibits as well as special installations were wonderful, and the building itself is spectacular inside and out. It is a manageable size, too. We spent the morning, went out for lunch, and came back in the afternoon, and we saw everything. There is no cafe, but a very nice gift shop that features some local artists. Art lovers, do not miss this!
