Where is Vulcan Park and Museum?
If you’re traveling in Alabama and visiting Birmingham, it’s worth taking a detour to Red Mountain. Up here is an iron Statue of the god Vulcan.
It is the largest iron Statue in the world and was once built as a landmark for the region’s steel industry. At the foot of the now elaborately restored Statue there is also a small Museum about the history of the Statue and the steel industry, which is not free of charge. From up here you have a wonderful view of the roofs of the city and the surrounding area. It takes about half an hour for the tour – a little longer if you want to take the elevator to the top of the Statue.
