  • Although I've never been much of a Superman fan, the five minute jaunt off I-24 into Metropolis is a nice break. We've stopped there several times. It can even be as destination if you are more of a f...  more »
  • This is a very nice statue of the classic, cartoon Superman. It stands 12' tall. A very respectful tribute to a cartoon superhero who stands for Truth, Justice, and the American Way. It's only 3 miles...  more »
  • The statue is not some cheap thing. It is well done, on a nice elevated platform. You can walk inside the fence around it and get right up on the platform right next to the statue. It is worth seeing.  more »

  • Fun to top past and get some photos. This trip was the first time we were able to visit the museum and store. If you’re in the area it’s worth a trip for Roadside experiences. Nice park on the edge of town for walking the dogs.
  • Awesome tribute to superman. Great fun. Well worth a quick hop off the highway. The town of metropolis was so much fun. Lots of history. A most unexpected delight. Stopped for a pit stop and stayed for 2 days.. Don't miss the The blue bridge and the Kincaid mounds ( the US equivalent of the pyramids) So much history here on the Ohio river. Can't wait to go back.
  • I just happen to have a job in Paducah which is across the river and seen this advertised and thought I check it out. Glad I did, the statue is pretty unique because where else do you see a giant superhero in the middle of a small town square. And the museum/gift shop is a great add in bonus. It has lots of goodies to buy for your kiddos and the museum is kinda run down looking a bit but still well worth checking out all the Superman collectables.
  • I made plans to stop here with my son who was five at the time on our way to Iowa. I planned it as a sight seeing and leg stretching activity. In my opinion, it was well worth it. My son loved seeing the statue and the store was great! If you love Superman or have any kids who adore this superhero, make plans to go while they're young and can enjoy it!
  • Standing next to Superman made me feel like a kid again. The town it self looked like one of the movies was filmed there complete with fallout shelter, police station, and shopping. Great for family fun. I also hear that Metropolis has a festival every year not sure when but I imagine its a super great time.
