The Superman Museum

Also known in some texts as "The Superman Hall of Trophies."

A museum devoted to Superman and located in the heart of Metropolis. The Superman Museum features trophies, statuaries, and artifacts of the legend of Superman. It features, among other things, a statue of Superman holding aloft a globe of Krypton (S No. 169/1, May 1964: "The Infernal Imp!").

The museum was founded by world-famous explorer, Stefan Andriessen. (Act No. 164, Jan 1952: "Superman's Hall of Trophies")

It is here that Joe Meach, also known as the Composite Superman, toils as a janitor (WF No. 142: "The Origin of the Composite Superman!" pts I-II—"The Composite Superman!"; "The Battle Between Titans!"; WF No. 168: "The Return of the Composite Superman!", pt II; "The Half-And-Half Heroes!").

In 1974, Lex Luthor and the Parasite both pay separate visits to the Superman Museum in disguise, but only as part of brief lulls before launching their respective next attacks on Superman (S No. 271, Jan 1974: "The Man Who Murdered Metropolis!").

By August-September 1979, the Superman Museum has become a secret hideout for the criminal organization known as the 100. They are consequently rooted out of their subterranean hiding place by Metropolis hero Black Lightning (WF No. 258/2, Aug-Sep 1979: "The Blood of the Lamb!").
