A beautiful display of the history of the city and its inhabitants. Very easy to find and view taking your time to look at each of the murals. Walking the downtown area is a bonus.

Fitting for Quilt City USA, the flood wall murals are huge depictions of Paducah history. Worth a visit if in downtown Paducah.

We had heard about the Floodwall but it was so much better than expected in person. Worth the trip! We want to return and enjoy all of the art district.

This was a very interesting place to visit. We drove from West Plains, MO It was a 4 hour trip. It was worth the trip.

Beautifully painted murals line the floodwalls. Great for a slow walk with a good cup of coffee and time to relax and enjoy. There's no charge to look, and it's very peaceful and contemplative. Lots of information to absorb.
