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 barrier wall a historical artifact. Absolutely though provoking and education as well.

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 etc) and in front of each area/catagory there is a marker offering more description and further explanation on the murals. Also if you go further down the wall there is the continuation of murals showing River Life. Very nice.

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.
