You don't have to spend a lot of money to see some beautiful art.

We always like to do free stuff and it's a bonus when it's inside with air conditioning. And some art and culture is never a bad idea.

The Figge Art Museum in downtown Davenport will be offering free admission for the entire month of July. The museum has some beautiful exhibitions they are home to this summer. Besides their permanent collection of art, they also have:

  • Walter Wick: Hidden Wonders!
  • Illuminated Manuscripts from the Figge Collection
