It was awesome to see all the displays about our forebears and what they went through to come to the US. We also saw two park benches built by our Grandfather in 1898, they were used in Schuetzen Park in Davenport, Iowa. They had been rescued and then donated to the German American Heritage Center in memory of our Grandfather and Grandmother and we didn't even know it until today.

It was worth visiting. They had an exhibit on Bauhaus, but it seems the kaleidoscope exhibit is gone besides a large kaleidoscope. I enjoyed learning what it was like to be German-American during the world wars. They had several fun, interactive displays.

About German American Heritage Center

German journalist Joseph Eiboeck called Davenport “the most German city, not only in the State, but in all the Middle West, the center of all German activities in the State.” That makes sense; when the Standard Hotel opened its doors in the 1860s, it played host to many new residents of the town, many of which were German immigrants. Now the historic building is the home of the German American Heritage Center, a non-profit that seeks to keep their cultural heritage alive. Permanent exhibits, such as the multimedia-focused "German Immigrant Experience," paint a picture of life as an immigrant, while temporary exhibits can focus on very specific stories. One such story focuses on German-American Charles Bush, who helped spark the country's love of kaleidoscopes.
