We visited Vulcan and had a great time. The view from the top of the statue was spectacular. The museum was great and we learned a great deal about Birmingham. Don't miss this.

Came to see the Vulcan as a result of Corey, a waiter in O'Charleys. He said it was serene and majestic. He was correct and it did not disappoint!! Awesome!

Clean. Small. Nothing special. We didn't pay to go inside the museum. I'm sure it's fine. The water fountain wasn't in operation.

The paths in this park are very steep and not too long. You,d be better off riding somewhere else. There were several cars in the parking lot with bike racks attached. The bikes were in the racks, none were in use,
