Great for Superman fans

We enjoyed the store and museum. The museum is only $5.00. It was worth the trip down memory lane. Souvenirs are cheaper at the Chamber office.

The Super museum is packed from floor to ceiling with Superman memorabilia. It covers both the history of superman and continues to the new information. The exhibits are old and bring back memories to those who have watched Superman for years. It is $5 and you get your money's worth

The museum is small but the entrance fee is only $5 and there is a lot of stuff for the dedicated Supreman fans. the shop has a large selection of goods if not a little pricey. The shop you can visit for free.

A must stop for any Comic or Superhero fan. The museum is easy to locate with multiple signs, across the road from the Superman Statue. The museum has many rare movie, TV, comic, and collectibles on display. Their are many George- Christopher Reeves movie era props and some from the recent releases. The displays are somewhat scattered, but fun to... More

A lot of old superman stuff to wander around and look at. All kinds of souvenirs to shop for. Some stuff was a little pricey though like other similar attractions.

So I don't really have a Superman mania, but all in all this was a good stop. If you are really into Superman, you could probably spend a day here. For me, it was about a 45 min. stop. No matter, I totally enjoyed my visit. I did kind of blow thru it. I really liked talking with the owner,... More

I was in Metropolis for the celebration of life services for Noel Neill, the "Original Lois Lane" and stopped in Jim Hambrick's Super Museum. Hambrick collected an impressive array of Superman items including comic books, toys, television & movie memorabilia, costume, art and photographs from all eras spanning nearly 80 years of Superman. It is a must-see while in Metropolis.
