I visited this site with my husband and our family last November. The weather was a tad chilly for our taste but the Wall was amazing. I am a history buff and love art. This combined both of my favorite things. It was very informative and the murals were beautifully painted. Definitely worth a visit!

We have been there several times. The wall is very well done and the plaques in front of each picture is very informative.

The flat flood wall murals were so lifelike that they appeared to be 3 dimensional. Really exceptional quality. Having driven here from Paducah, the two cities flood wall murals were of totally different quality. Excellent descriptions on plaques in from of each mural. VERY nicely done !!

The flood wall in downtown Cape has beautiful murals painted on both sides of the wall. They tell a good overview of Missouri and Cape history. Always enjoy taking visitors here for a stroll and history lesson.

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.
