Visit Our Museum

Since 1995, the German American Heritage Center building was saved from demolition, restored, renovated, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and has become Davenport's newest museum.  Read about the history of the building...

INTERACTIVE PERMANENT EXHIBIT “The German Immigrant Experience”
Since 2007, the GAHC has undergone a complete interior renovation and exhibit space was increased by six times the original layout.  The museum includes an interactive, audio-visual permanent exhibit, “The German Immigrant Experience.” which takes visitors on an exploration of what it was like to be an immigrant to this area in the 1800s.  The exhibit is highly interactive and includes a theater, audio-visual stations, artifacts and two restored hotel rooms. The creation of this exhibit area marks a major milestone at the GAHC; achieving its goal of providing a premier educational, historical and recreational experience. It was designed by Morgan-Bailey Consulting out of Des Moines, Iowa.

The GAHC also has two temporary exhibit spaces. These spaces will change throughout the year showcasing different exhibits.  

The World of Berta Hummel - opens Tuesday, April 22 at noon, main floor.

Celebrating 100 years of the Quad City Symphony - opens Friday, April 25, third floor.
