The world famous Superman Museum, family owned and operated, officially opened in 1993 in the Man of Steel's official hometown of Metropolis, Illinois on Superman Square. The museum features 20,000+ items from the life's work of longtime Superman enthusiast and collector, Jim Hambrick who has amassed one of the greatest collections of Superman memorabilia in the world. Among the items showcased in the museum from the iconic superhero's 75+ year history are virtually every Superman toy ever produced as well as movie props and promotional materials from all the Superman movies & TV series (including "Smallville" and "Man of Steel") and one of the only George Reeves Superman costumes still in existence. The museum is organized around particular eras and portrayals of Superman, spanning television, movies, and comics; and is changed frequently, to encourage repeat visits.

There was a ton of Superman stuff. It was so packed in there. It kind of reminded me of an antique store. I'm glad we saw it but I'm not sure we'd go back.

This place was a hoot! So many memories from watching Superman on TV in the 50s. The museum is FULL of memorabilia and history. The gift shop has lots of fun and corny stuff. I recommend it if you're in the area.

I was disappointed after spending $5 a person that there wasn't more. Everything in the gift shop was fairly overpriced as well. Cool to see most of what was here but I've seen more elsewhere
