“Vulcan Park Magic”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

I thought The Vulcan was a very neat place. I love knowing what the history behind The Vulcan is. It is amazing what Birmingham is now, compared to what it used to be. The view is amazing! The admission is not a bad price at all. I LOVED the staff! It was older people, which I thought was great, not a bunch of younger people. The staff was super nice and sweet. If you are in Birmingham and looking for something to do, I suggest this. Especially if you like learning history and you would like to see a beautiful view of the city of Birmingham.

Very informative of Birmingham’s history and how the city was developed. The views from the top on a clear day were magnificent.

“Top of Birmingham”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

It is an amazing place to visit and see the city of Birmingham from a high point. Climbing the stairs to the top of Vulcan is quite a feat but worth facing a fear of heights. (There is the optional elevator to the top.)

“Nice views of Birmingham”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Really nice spot to see the city-line of Birmingham. There is a fee to get into the museum or to the top of Vulcan. If you have time the museum is really worth the visit.

“A must see in Birmingham”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

This is a must see in our great city. It is a Birmingham tradition. Be sure to walk to the top for the best view in the city. The entire park is beautiful. A great place to take the kids too! I always take out of towners.
