Been to see this multiple times very informative and some interactive options. Generally clean and occasional graffiti on signs along walkway but usually does not last long. One trip I saw graffiti on Monday and Wednesday I went back and it was gone probably kids playing pranks.

The wall features murals of the city's history from early Native inhabitants to more recent times. It also has another section dedicated to famous people from Missouri. It's worth of look if you are heading to the downtown area. It's also on a flood wall, which is also an important part of the city's heritage.

Really enjoyed the wall murals. Surprised by some of the Missouri folks included because I didn't realize they were from Missouri.

The whole Riverfront area is worth a visit. The history of Missouri/Cape Girardeau and the Wall of Fame are nice improvements to the flood wall.

The Missouri Wall of Fame in Cape Girardeau, MO is an eye opening bit of history. So many famous people came from MO. So many will surprise you! The paintings are beautiful and worth a look even if you aren't interested in the characters so fantastically displayed. I am especially grateful that someone took the effort to make a flood... More

My husband and I were visiting Cape Girardeau for the first time and as it was during the winter some of the places we wanted to see were closed. I remembered seeing the wall of fame on TripAdvisor so thought we would check it out. We are very glad that we did. The wall is organized by catagory (sports, cinema... More

This gives you the history of Cape Girardeau and is a good general historical account. The art is very good. It will take no more than an hour to take in this place of interest. I do recommend it. I think it's quite interesting. Port Cape restaurant offers hand dipped ice cream cones at an outside window across the street..

We enjoyed the wall of fame very much and took our time admiring each section. This was an unscheduled stop for us as our riverboat had to go South rather than North due to a damaged lock but we saw murals in several cities.

Skillfully done murals, unlike most murals which look under par. Lots of photo ops by the Mississippi riverbanks inside the wall. Breathtaking to just sit there and savor nature all the time you need.
