  • So this small town has embraced the Man of Steel in a big way, with a large, colorful statue right smack dab in front of the city hall. Sure, it's kitschy. But who cares? It's a great side trip!  more »
  • We briefly stopped in this area just to see the statue. There's a small comic book/ museum near the statue with Superman memorabilia. You could tell it was in need of some upkeep but still, the experi...  more »
  • Pretty cool piece of classic Americana! If you like truth, justice and the American way, stop and get a selfie with the Man of Steel.  more »

  • What can you say?! I wouldn't plan a vacation here, but if you're in the area, this is a must stop. Superman is GIANT and no pictures do the size of the status justice. The area around it is a lot of fun as well. From phone booths to old cars. Loved it!
  • Great tourist attraction for the comic minded person. The gift shop clerk was extremely friendly. They even had a couple of freebies. The parking is convenient and they have kept it easy to get pictures safely. Stop by the fort while in town.
  • It's pretty cool to check out if you're nearby or passing through. There isn't a whole lot to it but it's free. There is the statue and then a little museum with a set up out front that has a daily planet sign and car as well as a phone booth that one could imagine Superman using. Like I said there's not a whole lot there but if you like Superman or comics in general it's cool to be able to say you went to Metropolis.
  • It's a gigantic statue of Superman. You can pose for pictures under it, and there are little platforms you can have your friends or family stand on to shoot your picture. If you are looking for more or less out of it than that, I just don't know what to tell you. Did not have kryptonite in my possession, so I could not test whether the statue was also weak in the presence of a glowing, green, fictitious rock. The day I was here, Earth's yellow sun was clearly visible, and like the comics, Superman seemed sturdy in its presence and resisted my efforts to push him over, but I am a regular human. More tests may be necessary.
  • Cool little tourist town. Not much else there but the statue and a few little museums. Highly recommend for a pit stop if you're driving by.
