Herzlich Willkommen zum German American Heritage Center! 
Wir begrüssen alle Mitglieder und Freunde!


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...


We offer many opportunities for the public to learn about Germans in our area and the nation.  The museum includes an interactive, audio-visual 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.   Temporary, or traveling, exhibits expand on our permanent exhibit highlighting specific topics of interest.


The GAHC also offers a variety of classes, programs and events.  Our calendar of events will keep you up-to-date on what's happening at the Center.
