Touring Milwaukee, Wisconsin anytime soon?  Skip, the Miller and PBR brewery tours. The first place you should visit is the new National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s and its newest occupant – Birmingham’s own Bobblehead Vulcan.

According to the folks at the Vulcan Park and Museum, our Vulcan – the symbol of the city,  has joined the ranks of celebrity bobbleheads such as Lebron James, the cast of the Big Bang Theory and Game of Thrones, and countless  baseball, football,  basketball and sports mascots bobbleheads.

Now the big question is…. do any of the “Hall of Fame” bobbleheads have  have bobblebuns like our Vulcan?

The Magic City’s beloved Vulcan can now be found  at the newly opened museum, located in the heart of Milwaukee. The museum, which opened in February 2019, was formed when two friends, Phil Sklar and Brad Novak turned their hobby into a passion. For over a decade, they collected bubbleheads and have now created the largest bobblehead collection in the world with 6,500 bobbleheads.

In addition to the expansive collection and variations of bobbleheads, visitors can see the dozens of exhibits related to the history of bobbleheads, making of bobbleheads and more. There is also a store onsite that features bobbleheads and merchandise.
