Vulcan Park and Museum
BirminghamView all Birmingham attractions
Vulcan Park is home to the world's largest cast-iron statue and features spectacular panoramic views of Birmingham and the opportunity to hear the stories of Birmingham's past, present and promise for the future. Vulcan, the Roman god of fire and forge, was originally built in 1904 for the St. Louis World's Fair to represent Birmingham's iron industry. The newly renovated Vulcan Park sits atop Red Mountain with Vulcan standing 124 feet off the mountain on his original 1938 pedestal. A 10-acre urban green space surrounds the 56-foot-tall statue and open-air observation deck. Visitors find interactive exhibits and displays that give insight into the region's geology, history and industrial growth. Vulcan Park is also a unique, memorable location to host private events, both corporate and social. Groups are welcome. Free parking and bus parking.
