I am a huge Rocky fan. So this was an amazing place to visit and take pictures. Not to mention you have to run the Rocky steps .

I can't get excited over a statue of a fictional character in a movie from the 80's about a sport no one pays attention to anymore. I just don't get why this statue is still here. There's so much real art, real culture, and real history to send your time on in Philly. Rocky? Get over it.

Of course we had to have out pic taken in front of the "Rocky Statue". You must strike the pose! (hee hee) However, we did not run up the steps to the museum and dance around at the top. (I barely made it walking up the steps!)

if anyone has seen the Rocky movies, you want to see the statue. Be prepared to walk up the "endless steps". Go ahead, try to run it like Rocky did .. LOL then strike a pose!

Nice to see as an outsider but with living here I have been many times, there are Panhandler's there that keep the line long and they expect you to tip them as they pretend to be working for the Museum..

This is a must see if you're a fan, but you'll find it very hard to park and even harder to get a clear photo

This is a must do!!! The Rocky Stairs are located just to the left of the statue. Be aware if someone offers to take your picture at the top of the stairs they may be homeless and are expecting a tip!!

This iconic statue, at the base of the Art Museum steps, always has visitors lined up to take photos in the famous Rocky victory pose. Really crazy how popular this continues to be!

Yes, during our trip here in July - we had to find the Rocky statue and run up the steps! And yes, we made goofy pictures at the top of the steps and laughed our heads off! Got to admit - in the movie there looks like a lot more steps, not that there isn't a good bit. With the... More
