We had never been to Cape Girardeau MO so we were pleasantly surprised when we came upon the Missouri Wall of Fame. It was very informative, interesting, and pleasing to the eye. We enjoyed being up close to the Mississippi River and watching barges going each direction. It was a nice day and we could walk along the river on... More

If you are in Cape Girardeau, this is something you don't want to miss. The paintings and history are quite good and it dresses up the levee wall.

Walk along the Mississippi River and learn some interesting facts about the history of Cape Girardeau Missouri. Excellent artwork painted on the flood wall takes you back in time, with individual plaques (audio is also available) explaining details of our rich history on the river.

Cape GIradeau had to defend itself from Mississippi floods and so built a concrete wall which blocked out views of the river. So what to do? They commissioned a series of murals that show the history of the city and famous people either born in MIssouri or with a very strong connection with the state. It's certainly worth seeing.

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.
