“Vulcan Park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

Vulcan Park has been redesigned and upgraded - I have not seen it since they made improvements, I admit. The view is beautiful, and overlooks the entire city. However, the "museum" consisted mostly of old pictures and anecdotes.

“Great view of the city”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

Great view and interesting museum. Other than that, it's pretty much just a statue.

“What a view!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

Nothing to make a whole day out of - if you would like a full day of sights I would suggest Vulcan and the B'ham Zoo.

“Great Way to Kill Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

The Vulcan Park & Museum was a way to kill time before a UAB function that I attended. I actually enjoyed it and the views were awesome. The museum was actually very interesting, and it was nice to know some history about the city I will be living in for the next four years.
