There's a plethora of merchandise in this shop. Socks, buttons, mugs, you name it...they probably have it. The staff was helpful and friendly. We had fun looking at all the different items. They have a new pressed penny machine with 4 different designs. :)

Not too far from the highway, we stopped by on the way back home on the weekend. Museum was closed, but still got to enjoy the statue and the small town feeling. Really worth stopping as a Superman Fan.

We are not huge super hero fans, but this museum has an impressive collection of memorabilia. Store attached is kitchy, but expected no less.

Went there years ago and they have more stuff. Really cheap to get in. Memorabilia is packed in pretty tight in places but they are planning on expanding. They have a lot of items from all the Supermen from 30's serials to today's movies.
