Figge Art Museum

Admire over 4,000 works of art at this impressive art museum that serves the residents of eastern Iowa and western Illinois with its resources and collections.

Figge Art Museum has stood in its current location since 2005, but its impact on the Davenport area and beyond stretches back to 1878, when the Davenport Art Association was created. Wander through the galleries filled with paintings, sculptures and other forms of fine art for a memorable cultural experience.

The first pieces of art donated to the museum were owned by Charles Ficke, a community leader who spent time collecting art from around the world. Today notice that the massive glass building that houses the Figge Art Museum is practically a piece of art itself. The unusual glass block building was designed by British architect David Chipperfield, who envisioned the finished museum looking sleek and sophisticated.

Begin your visit to the Figge Art Museum with a stop in the American Art galleries. See paintings that represent key events in American history, including the Louisiana Purchase and the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861. For additional American art, visit the American Scene gallery, where you will see artworks depicting everyday life during the 1920s and 1930s.

Continue your journey around the museum by viewing the Northern Europe gallery, which focuses heavily on religious reform and conflict. Other European galleries include art from the Spanish colonial period and art focused on academics that date back to the 18th and 19th centuries.

Finish your visit to the museum by touring the Spirit of Haiti gallery. Here, see Haitian art in a variety of styles that depict the country’s rich history, as well as social and cultural problems. Many paintings in this gallery are characterized by bold colors and patterns.

Drive your car to the Figge Art Museum and park on the surrounding streets for up to 2 hours free of charge. Admission to the museum has a fee, but children get a significant discount. Book a group tour in advance at an additional cost to learn more about the galleries. The museum is open every day except Monday and some holidays.
