Some of these wall murals that I've seen look like a child did them. These are beautiful. They cover the entire history of Paducah in about 40 panels. Some are almost photographic. Very well done!

All the pictures that are depicted are in great detail with plaques to explain them. The colors just jump out. They were lots of fun to walk.

Paducah was a very nice stop on our trip. The wall and murals was something everyone can enjoy. The view of the river along the walk is very good. The signs tell the story of the historic rivers. Many shops in the area for all type of purchases. Food and drink available in many places also.

I absolutely love these murals and the history depicted in each one. I know how wonderful it is for someone,such as me, who must depend on vehicles and wheelchairs for any sightseeing.

Much better than your average murals; well executed and they tell a great story. And, you get to drive through openings in the wall to go down to the river.

Beautiful artwork that tells the history of the area. Close to numerous restaurants, the river front and the quilt museum. Great area to walk and check out the antique shops.

These murals were a good showcase of the history of the city. They show the founding of the city up to current times.

The flood wall art is beautiful. The first time we went past on foot and I thought the art was great, but driving past it, you would almost think the river in the murals was moving. Beautiful and such a story it tells.
