1 review of Vulcan Park and Museum

Largest cast iron statue in the world

Vulcan Park is most famous for being home to the Vulcan statue, the largest cast iron statue in the world and, at over 50 feet tall, on of the largest statues in the United States. Vulcan Park is located on top of Red Mountain in Birmingham, Alabama and offers what are probably the best views in the entire city. The statue itself is depicts the Roman god Vulcan, the forger, and is in tribute to Birmingham's mining and forging past.

The park is open 7 days a week and costs around $6 for adults with discounts for veterans, seniors, and kids. While the statue and the views are worth the trip alone, they've recently put a lot of work into transforming the park into a full-on educational center with a museum detailing Birmingham's mining history dating all the way back to its founding.
