No More Mr. Clean......
My buddy and I attended a concert by the Alice Cooper Group on Tuesday, May 13, 2018. The Taxslayer Center is a great venue for concerts. There really are no bad seats! The sound system is crisp snd clear, too. It has good access and a person can move quickly to the exits once sn event is finished. The restrooms are clean, too. It was a great show in a great venue!

We were very impressed with the lay-out and art. A couple of Picassos, Miro, and other modern masters (not our style but very good) Many Haiti paintings. Five Grant Wood with some memorabilia from Grant Wood's sister, nice old world 15th century Dutch, section on Frank Lloyd Wright, a Moran, a Bierstadt, a Russell.

We visited this tour mid August when it was just a few weeks from shutting down for the off season so not all areas were operational & they were cleaning up some areas. However, what we did see was great. Good to see how a harvester starts with a sheet of metal and finishes with a "fully grown machine". After a short film, we were loaded onto 'touring trailers' (for want of a better word), and toured around the factory, with headphones and safety glasses, passing through the assembly and painting areas. For ages 13 and up, I think they said, and as you are taken around on the cart, it is suitable for those unable to walk with ease. Except for the paint area where the painting is viewed from an upstairs platform. Highly recommended but I suggest visiting before August before they start shutting some parts down for the off-time. They start up again in November. There is a small shop for John Deere product purchases but a better range can be found at the Pavilion. Recommended.

Exploration is encouraged at this museum.
From the outside it doesn't look like much, but it was so much fun! So much to do for the little ones (we had a 3yo, 5yo, and 9yo with us), we stayed for hours and they were sad to leave. A big favorite was the combine simulator, and another was the Big-esque step piano. They even have a nice-sized outdoor play area in the back. We will definitely return in the summer when the sprinklers are on.
Great way to spend the day!

Beautiful building, lovely setting, great parking ---- But don't go to eat. First you have to walk about 100 yards through the casino to even find the restaurant. Then well the buffet was worth about $5. Food bins empty. Meat cold. And the fruit dumped out of the package into the serving bowls without being washed.

This zoo has grown & improved so much since we used to take our young children there 30 years ago. Now we take our grandchildren & they love it. It isn't a huge zoo so it isn't overwhelming for little ones. Exhibits are well done & the animals look well cared for. Our grandsons especially enjoyed the monkeys & giraffes.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, America's largest government-owned arsenal is located on a 946-acre island in the Mississippi River.
This is where my family is buried, as all have served since the Civil War. This will be my eternal resting place too someday.
My grandfather, Waldo Goetsch, was it's Superintendent. There is a beautiful Confederate Cemetary to honor the PWO's who died here in captivity. We are one Nation under God, indivisible...

This park and conservatory is an interesting place year round and provides some interesting botanical exhibits. Regardless of the season, there is almost always a flowering plant. The place is great for weddings and receptions, and the staff is easy to work with!

This museum showcases the history of the Arsenal and the armaments it has produced over the years.
Its a working Army Command, so security is tight and requires a background check and residency in the US. My Vietnamese wife could not enter when we first visited last year before our marriage because she was traveling on a tourist visa. We returned this year after our marriage and with her green card and she had no problem getting on base. Clearances are issued for one year.

The Putnam is a place where people connect with history and ideas by doing, making and experiencing. Our classes and special events are a great complement to our hands-on exhibit galleries. There is always something new to discover and something for everyone at the Putnam.
Great exhibits for kids to use their fine and large motor skills. Exhibits are a little too advanced for toddlers and early elementary though there are activities within each exhibit for smaller children to participate and learn. The vacuum tubes and scarves had our grandsons entranced for 30 minutes plus! The dress up and play Indian village is great fun as is the tall tree house.
Of course, everyone must go to the lower level to see mummies and sarcophagus - as interesting now as it was 40 years ago
We remember the building when it was Davenport Art Gallery. It is great to see this wonderful space utilized by exhibits allowing room for large or small tours.
Whether visiting the Quad Cities or a resident, there are interesting exhibits for young and young at heart.
