A bit of a walk but it would have been no problem if it wasn't so hot that day. Very interesting paintings and a great view of the river. A good place to sit & watch the river also.

We happened upon the wall while exploring Cape. This little attraction is done very well. Interesting look into the past even if you're not a big history bluff. We walked the wall and then walked back along the river walk...nice night

The mural on the Mississippi River wall in downtown Cape Girardeau is unique and insightful. I had no idea of the heritage of Cape or the many famous individuals who were from Missouri. This is worth the time to check out and it totally FREE.

Some of the information was missing so weren't sure who or what they did for Missouri. The area behind the wall was in need of some clean up and weed removal

The beautiful drawings on the Mississippi river flood wall in Cape Girardeau, MO depict many aspects of history not only for our local area but for the state of Missouri. Have taken many family and friends to see this wall over the years, everyone enjoys this part of their visit.

I have seen the wall many times and take visitors to see it when they come to town. The wall not only gives a summary of the history of Cape and shows you famous people from Missouri. While there enjoy views of the Mississippi River.

The Missouri Wall of Fame is painted on the downtown Cape Girardeau, Mo. flood control wall. Prior to the flood wall downtown Cape would flood nearly every year when the Mississippi reached flood stage. The concrete wall made a wonderful blank sheet for local Artist to paint the Missouri Wall of Fame. The Wall makes for a nice walking tour... More
