This is a great place, we so enjoyed the town and museum. They have great collections of the old and new superman stuff. Lots of goodies. What can you say but go and enjoy. Admission is $5.00 each.

I went to see the Superman statue in Metropolis, IL and stopped by the Super Museum/Gift Shop. I only bought 2 post cards and I didn't go in the Super Museum. The store is crammed with all things Superman and I imagine it is heaven for true fans.

I am predominantly a fan of the fifties show and found that part of the museum very interesting. Just breezed through the rest but for a Superman fan it's well worth the $5.

Place was very cool. Liked all the avaliable items in the shop. Museum was ok, staff was rude, and either comatose or did not give a rats@$$ if anyone ever came there.

We enjoyed the store and museum. The museum is only $5.00. It was worth the trip down memory lane. Souvenirs are cheaper at the Chamber office.

The Super museum is packed from floor to ceiling with Superman memorabilia. It covers both the history of superman and continues to the new information. The exhibits are old and bring back memories to those who have watched Superman for years. It is $5 and you get your money's worth

The museum is small but the entrance fee is only $5 and there is a lot of stuff for the dedicated Supreman fans. the shop has a large selection of goods if not a little pricey. The shop you can visit for free.

A must stop for any Comic or Superhero fan. The museum is easy to locate with multiple signs, across the road from the Superman Statue. The museum has many rare movie, TV, comic, and collectibles on display. Their are many George- Christopher Reeves movie era props and some from the recent releases. The displays are somewhat scattered, but fun to... More
