Destination of the Day: Putnam Museum and IMAX Theater, Davenport, IA

Destination 1 in the series "Public Offering"


The map of the museum, available online, makes the place look pretty sizable.  While you might be a little disappointed in the real thing (and sometimes its special exhibit quality) the museum currently does have a nice blockbuster show - "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibit", along with the companion IMAX film "Ghosts of the Abyss".  Also in their rotating space is 'Spirit of the Land: A Tribute to Native American Plains Culture".  While the museum is only about two miles from downtown hotels, the hill might prove to be too much walking for some.  Note: Davenport is largest of the 'Quad Cities' area (Davenport & Bettendorf, IA and Rock Island & Moline, IL)
