This treasure is such a pleasant surprise. The curated shows are always interesting and educational. The permanent collection is filled with beautiful works of noted artists. It has the largest collection of Haitian art in the country. Well worth a visit.

If you haven't been to the Figge Art Museum, you have missed out on a world class art collection and facility. Plus the Figge has a wonderful gift shop, a first-class restaurant and great classes.

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.....
