I took pictures in front of the statue and went into the Museum. It is a must see if you are on a road trip and you are near Metropolis, IL especially if... More

Great place to get a selfie with Superman! It's free and there are several cut outs that are available for pictures! Enjoyed a short stop in Metropolis!

I took my grandsons for the Superman Festival and was a little disappointed. I thought it would be a much bigger event. We spent one day at the festival and the other 3 days over in KY & TN.

A trip through the area has to include a stop at the Superman statue. it's like 20 feet tall and has a perfect picture area. Plenty of shops in town. it's great fun.

Little did I know that when I spotted the highway sign “Metropolis” it would take me to downtown to meet Superman. What an interesting and fun place to stop for some photo shoots and laughter. The statue of Superman is truly bigger than life, both the one on the square and the one that is hanging on the building next... More

All this time I've searched the world for my dream man and he's been right here in Illinois. This is a fun pit stop to stretch your legs and take a picture with the Man Of Steel. The statue is in good condition and in an area with plenty of parking. My grandson had fun hanging out here and at... More

The Superman statue does not disappoint and is a perfect place for pictures. Other superman/girl cutouts are available for pictures, and my kids loved the fake telephone booth! A Lois Lane statue (not as big) is down the road. Cute place to visit if you are in traveling in the area or passing by.

So tall and well kept. Plenty of parking and shopping nearby. A great tourist attraction and definitely worth a stop. There's also a Lois Lane statue 2 blocks down from the Superman statue. Once a year they have a HUGE Superman gathering.

Great fun stop to see Superman. Great gift shop nearby. Just about 3 miles off the interstate and definitely worth it to stop for a bit.
