“Not much to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Nothing special at all. If you happen to be driving by I guess it's worth a look out your window but that's about it.

“Cape Girardeau Riverfront”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Located at the Worlds only inland Cape. Enjoy a brief walking tour (approximate 15 minutes) reliving Missouri historical figures painted on the floodwall that holds back the mighty mississippi river from breaching the Old downtown.

“Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

If you have to have a flood wall--and they do, you might as well dress it up. The murals were a nice piece of history.

“Interesting walk by the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

The Wall is actually a number of murals done on the flood control wall. A good use of space. The wall gives a simple yet effective picture of the Cape Girardeau area from the time that Indians were the only inhabitants, through the 20th century. It also depicts a number of the states more famous inhabitants. An enjoyable experience.

“I Didn't Know That”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

A definite must see when touring The Cape. The Missouri Wall of Fame & Mississippi River Tales Mural is interesting & informative. Begin at Independence & Water Sts., & you may be able to walk through an open floodgate to view the "Great River." It is sectioned off in about 5 year increments, & there are interpretive plates at each section. See if you can find the portraits that DO NOT have their names written next to them, then use the plates to find out who they are. Keep the kids in the game. :-> Also, find the years for high water marks on the flood wall. Amazing to think that it holds back the "Father of All Waters."
