Might be super silly, but it's still Superman. Fun place to visit she you are near Metropolis, Illinois. Super large statue to take photos of and people-size one to pose with. All good silly fun! Museum nearby too, but we didn't have time. Super silly, super fun!

The huge Superman statue was great fun to see and take photographs with - fun for all ages. There were also other Superman-related photo opts in the area, all free of charge. We were too late to visit the nearby shops, but had a great time taking pictures and looking around.

If you are near Metropolis, you have to make your picture with the huge Superman Statue! It give you this sense of superpowers although I couldn't convince my husband to jump off a building. Haha. Fun downtown area tribute to the great Superman! Horse and buggy ride around town was lovely

How could you drive past the home of superman and not stop? We didn't have a lot of time to stop so I was grateful that the statue wasn't too far off the of path and best part, its free! Who can argue with that? My toddler loved it and it was a great little rest in our road trip.

It's every superhero junkies dream. There is an awesome comic book store a hundred yards or so away from the statue complete with a phone booth (so clark kent could change into superman). Maybe not everyone's cup of tea but I loved it

Go see it! Fun for Old and Young. Oh yes, there is a Casino near by, we made our money there! The town has a charm and is interesting.

If you are driving on I57, it's worth the 3 miles to go in town, see the statue, take selfies and photos and visit the Superman museum. Glad we stopped! It was fun and worth the trip.

Superman in Metropolis, say it ain't so. Metropolis, fictional home of Superman in the Comics, has come to life at the Massac County Courthouse. If your near town swing in to see it.
