It’s a bird, It’s a plane, It’s the Miller’s pulling their pop-up camper…No It’s..Superman!  Returning from a two week camping vacation out west I surprised the family by swinging by the small Ohio River town of Metropolis (population 6,500) to visit the Superman Super Museum & Gift Shop located at Superman Square in downtown. Opened in 1993, the museum has over 70,000 comics, toys, shirts, movie & TV props & costumes, promotional items and other Superman memorabilia. Since I grew up reading Superman comics and watching the TV series this was a must stop for me. The town square had a huge Superman statue. Outside of the museum we posed for many photos behind fake Superman costumes. The whole family enjoyed browsing through the museum and looking at all the items. This is a must see Roadside Attraction.
