This is a very nice statue of the classic, cartoon Superman. It stands 12' tall. A very respectful tribute to a cartoon superhero who stands for Truth, Justice, and the American Way. It's only 3 miles off the freeway, free and fun!

The statue is not some cheap thing. It is well done, on a nice elevated platform. You can walk inside the fence around it and get right up on the platform right next to the statue. It is worth seeing.

What a fun clean unexpected place to a break. If you are not a Superman Fan don’t stop here, this place won’t disappoint. The Superman Museum was a little to much for me but the rest of the family had fun with it.

This statue is right in the middle of town next to a small museum of everything Superman. It is defiantly worth the trip to see it.

The superman statue is one great place to take a picture. Colors on statue are bright and city hall in background looks good. There was a steady group of people taking pictures this is a must when visiting metropolis.
