An ingenious way to make the Mississippi River levee into an interesting and beautiful learning experience! We learned so much and marveled at the art work. Thanks Gillian

The murals are a nice feature that spruces up the flood wall along the river. Many of them are great depictions of history and they sort of start with early civilizations then go to current times but then back into some history... nice brass plaques to help describe each of the murals. The first one that was placed there is totally different than all of the others at is a more abstract depiction of the areas important features, but it is clear the City is proud of its history and wanted to ensure most of the story got into the murals. This is good for about a 30 minute walk, you cannot see the river from here.

If you have kids, they will get bored, and across the street is a nice park for the kids to play, complete with blues music playing on an intercom system. The park is bright and cheery, too.

Vicksburg's Riverfront Murals are a treasure that were painted on the floodwall 10-15 years ago. They are a nice stop for anyone in the downtown area.

Its free and tells many stories of the city of Vicksburg. Local artists painted these murals on the flood control wall along the river.
