What You'll Get


Cities often commemorate their most illustrious citizens as statues, preserving the chiseled features and stony faces of fallen staring-contest heroes to inspire future generations. Take photos of you jumping at the feet of history with today's Groupon: for $7, you get two tickets plus 10% off one item at the gift shop at Vulcan Park and Museum, located on Red Mountain. Tickets are a $6 value for adults, $5 for ages 65+, and $4 for children ages 5–12. Children under 4 are free, and tax is included.

Sporting the largest cast-iron statue in the world—a 56-foot, 100,000-pound statue of Vulcan, Roman god of the forge—Vulcan Park and Museum also boasts panoramic views of the city and eye-opening lessons on Birmingham's geology and industrial history. Assembled from local metal in 1904 and erected at the World’s Fair in St. Louis the same year, Vulcan was then shipped back to Birmingham. In 2003, after successfully defending the city from the Kraken, the Colossus of the Deep South was painstakingly moved to its current Red Mountain roost. Inside the museum, a multitude of interactive exhibits regale visitors with tales of the town and Vulcan's storied past, from its World's Fair beginnings to its failed hip-hop career. Your tickets also grant you an elevator ride to Vulcan Park's 124-foot-high observation deck, where you can glimpse a dazzling portrait of the teeming wildlife in the urban jungle below. Bring a camera and say cheese next to the iron god's foot, check out specialty exhibits in the Linn-Henley Gallery, or get in your daily recommended dosage of romping in the area's surrounding 10-acre park.

Patrons who stop by Vulcan gift shop with their Groupon will also receive a 10% discount on any one item. Plastic and paper currency are accepted alongside their metal counterpart. Be inspired to finally finish your 20-story butter sculpture of Burton Gilliam after a visit to Vulcan Park and Museum.

Reviews

Four Judy's Book reviewers and lilaguide reviewers give Vulcan Park and Museum an average of four stars. TripAdvisors give the park and museum four stars:

  • The newly remodeled Vulcan is a great place to visit, especially at night. The view is amazing, and it is a great place to take visitors to B'ham – Elizabeth T., Judy's Book
  • This is a great place to go and see the city from way above the masses. – lolasmom1234, lilaguide
  • I never realized how much Vulcan meant to the city of Birmingham until it was closed and taken down for renovation a few years ago. Vulcan park is now a very nice place for people to visit during the day and at night. – B.S., Judy’s Book
