If you are in the area or if you are a fan of large public artwork, these murals are worth a stop in the once-significant town of Portsmouth. The murals are easy to access. Parking is free. There's not a whole lot else in Portsmouth,...More

A must-see when visiting Portsmouth. Highly recommend the audio tour - it’s the best way to hear the back stories on the 56 stunning murals.

Fun to tour in the sun or rain, as you can drive in your car, view the paintings... and visit the museum.
