We were told to visit this site while visiting Birmingham, and we were not disappointed! Admission was about $6/adult, and worth it. This included a visit to the famed tower, overlooking the city, as well as entry to the site's museum galleries. This was one of the only spots we were able to visit while in town, and the museum's galleries nicely connected the history of Vulcan and industrialization, with the story of Birmingham itself, not shying away from cultural conflicts and politics. Nicely done, with a small shop to buy an array of Vulcan-esque souvenirs. The final gallery walking through has a neat institutional history, highlighting various ephemera and trinkets sold over the years with Vulcan's likeness. Also - your tickets will last throughout the day, so you may stop back later in the day to view the city at night. Worth it.
