712 West 2nd Street, Davenport, IA, United States, 52802
Located in a historic 1860s former German hotel, the German American Heritage Center offers insight on the German immigrant's life and the impact on American history. America was known as the land of new beginnings and chances, and people from all over the world would travel for a good life. By the turn of the 20th Century, nearly half of the Midwest's population were Germans. Davenport had the major concentration of these immigrants and the German American Heritage Center's building was the first to be built to cater these migrants and was the last standing of its kind in the area. The interactive exhibits gives a glimpse of that era and the contributions that these citizens made to make the America today. There are many educational programs offered as well. Browse through the Gift Shop for some unique German items.
