  • This is such a warm and welcoming museum with great history of the area. It was an Immigrant hotel & has a sample room that immigrants would have slept in. I love the "step into their shoes" exhibit with stories of real immigrants.
  • Its a really great place to learn about German heritage. You don't have to be German to participate in there very enriching programs. Trips, classes, events all kind of events. The museum is self guided for touring. It costs $5 per person. Memberships are $35 dollars a month. Davenport was first settled by German immigrants. It is really neat to learn about history and culture. You should check it out.
