The Magic City’s biggest attractions continue to open up. Last week, it was the Birmingham Zoo and Vulcan Park and Museum. This week, Topgolf and the Birmingham Botanical Gardens are reopening on Monday, June 15th.
Happy Belated Birthday Vulcan!
Birmingham’s most spectacular view of its skyline is back.
On June 10th, the Vulcan Park and Museum reopened the Observation Tower and the Vulcan Center for the first time since March. Christened on June 7, 1904 at the St. Louis World’s Fair, with waters from the Cahaba River, resumption of the museum and trips up to the observation deck coincided with Vulcan’s 116th Birthday.
Operating hours are back to normal. The Observation Tower and Park Grounds will be open daily from 10am to 10pm. Vulcan Center and Kiwanis Vulcan Trail will be open daily from 10am to 6pm.
