Good for a photo opportunity but other than that not much to see or do at the statue. A few more displays or info boards would be nice.

Why not. If you are in the area it is taking a quick spin through town and having a look at the Big Super Man! I did it and I'm not even a comic book or Super Man fan. There are a couple cool little shops in the area as well and the people of Metropolis are very friendly.

My two boys liked seeing the statue and putting their heads in the cut outs for a few pictures, but there isn't anything else here to see or do. There is a gift shop and a museum. We didn't go in the museum, but we walked through the shop. It was typical everything Superman. If you need a place to... More

You just gotta see the super sized Superman for plenty of photos to share with the folks back home. Best to take photos when the sun is not overhead.

The statue was very helpful in finding the center of town and a photo op. Stop at the museum for a wonderful experience.

Just for kicks and giggles take a quick spin around "downtown" Metropolis and check out superman. Of course he's there! Where else would he be?

Not a good time to visit with the road construction going on. Our first visit there 3 years ago it was a fun time. But I would research how long construction will be going on before visiting!

The City of Metropolis was a Official town 100 years before the Superman Comic existed. Isn't that pretty cool. Throughout the area there are special things to the Superman Lore. Another must Stop is the Superman Museum. I had a blast and I know you will as well.

If you are in Metropolis Illinois, you must visit the Superman statue I cannot imagine visiting this town and not taking the family for a photo op at the Superman statue. On our family road trip I accidentally found a great hotel deal at the casino in Metropolis. A pleasant surprise the following morning was to find out it was... More
