  • A wonderful museum that tells the story of immigrant contributions to the Quad Cities and the United States.
  • A largely unknown yet cool museum about German immigrants to both the US and to the QC, here, locally. Fun traveling exhibits. A very cool gift shop with lots of unique gift ideas for that hard to shop for person.
  • A lot of interesting history. Clearly a lot of hard work goes into this place.

  • Great place to stand for the parade
