Cool to see and we were very surprised to see that the museum was open at 830 in the evening For a town called Metropolis, there was not a soul to be seen. Very pretty and clean town

If you even get close, you have to drive into town to see Superman. You also can see the phone booth he changes in and a great museum/store. Great fun for all ages.

Very cool giant Superman statue. It is gated off so can't get too close for pictures. Very charming part of town with the Daily Planet and the telephone booth. Cool souvenir shop and lots of old timey looking shops around

Nice statue with easy access. Great place for pics. Eclipse glasses on Superman was a nice touch! Cute little town, playing on their Superman theme.

Nice town square. Access to statue available on all four sides. Cute boutiques in the 6 block area. Near bank, restaurant, gas station.

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!

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 experience was pretty cool. Took pictures and kept driving!

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.

If you are in the area go. If not and you are a Superman fan go. It's a statue, true. It is what it is but it is well maintained and the surrounding area is very well maintained. Be sure to see the other Superman...More
