After leaving St. Louis and heading into Illinois we were thankful the weather cleared up. We spent the morning of day 2 in Metropolis, IL. Yes, comic book fans, this is the site of the Superman museum. What’s amusing to me is, we stumbled upon Metropolis while looking at the map for an overnight location between St. Louis and Gatlinburg, TN. Small town Metropolis is in the southern tip of Illinois, and holds some historic sites as well as the home of our beloved American hero.
Every Superman icon, collectible, and Hollywood item is in the museum, be sure to check it out with your family of fans!
