  • This museum truly is "super"! It's a great look back on Superman, from his beginnings in the comic books through the recent and upcoming DC movies. I visited with my Grandmother and Brother and we all had a really great time! The museum is pretty cluttered but that kind of makes it charming. The giant statue outside of the museum was just icing on the cake! Please visit this one of a kind museum. I promise you that you won't be disappointed.
  • There is so much Superman stuff gathered together in one place it's unreal. You would be in this museum all day if you tried to examine everything thoroughly. Great collection. Really enjoyed my visit.
  • This place is jam packed full of random collections of items connected to the man of steel. The five dollar entrance fee is maybe a little high for getting to peruse the collection, but it's easy to spend an hour just looking at all the different pieces of history connected to Superman. The real highlight in my opinion is the gift shop, which you can shop through without an admission to the museum. There are plenty of items here you simply can't find anywhere else. If you love Superman, you should make the pilgrimage here at least once.
  • Had a great time visiting and exploring the sites of Metropolis and the museum. Had hoped to get a Super Dog costume for my dog who is posing at the feet of the Superman statue across the street from the museum but they were out
  • Awesome visit! The store has a lot of fun items for sale and there is a bunch of memorabilia. The owner and staff are very knowledgeable and they are amazing people! If you're anywhere near Metropolis, you should definitely check this place out.
