The German American Heritage Center also known as the Germania-Miller/Standard Hotel, is a cultural center and museum in Davenport, Iowa, United States, that chronicles and preserves the history of German-Americans in the Midwest region.
The German American Heritage Center was incorporated in 1994, and the board of directors purchased the Standard Hotel on the Davenport, Iowa riverfront in 1995. The building originally opened in 1862 as the Germania gasthaus, a guest house for immigrants. In 1983, the building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, and on the Davenport Register of Historic Properties in 1996. In 2009, extensive renovations to the center were completed with enhanced multimedia and exhibit spaces.
