We went to view the French Modernist art exhibit. Was disappointed in it. The advertised Monet and Manet. There was only one of each. A few Renoir and the rest were very obscure artists. The John Bloom "Close to Home" was much more interesting and...More

Had a French themed dinner in the cafe followed by a tour of the museum, it was lovely! The food was mediocre but had a good experience and the view from the cafe was gorgeous until they pulled the shades.

The museum has many displays, including temporary ones. The one now is "French Moderns: Monet to Matisse..". It is just wonderful. The museum has a lovely gift shop and coffee bar/restaurant. It's a nice place to visit and a wonderful venue for the quad cities.

We recently visited specifically to see a special exhibition (French Moderns). That exhibition was very enjoyable, with artwork we are not likely to see unless we travel to Brooklyn (where most of it came from). While there, we also took in another special exhibition of...More

The French Moderns exhibit is great but the auxiliary events; presentations about painters, authors, music of the time and issues add so much more. Luckily I live in Davenport and can attend many of these events. The Morisot presentation at Butterworth Center on 10/21 and...More

The Figge has a new exhibit through the end of the year. Titled Monet to Matisse, it has quite a few works not only from these two but others as well. Really worth seeing! For seniors like myself, there is no charge on Thursdays after...More

Admission for seniors 60 and over is $6.00. Sometimes a local corporation will underwrite free admission for a month or two but I think that's not in effect now. Their website has tons of info if you care to check it out... More

It really depends on what you want to see....I would say it takes at least 2 hours to see it all and enjoy the view of the Mississippi river.....
