It's beautiful but wouldn't travel out of my way to see it. If you take one of the bus tours, you will see it from the bus. It's a quick photo opportunity at best.

What a phenomenal tribute to one of the greatest saints ever! I think the Maid or Orleans would be pleased! This statue is on a small traffic island just to the north of the Museum of Art. Don't miss this one!

Along the parkway, you can see proudly mounted holding the flag. It is gold color underlying copper. At night when the sunsets, you can see the beauty of this and many others that dot the parkway/Logan's circle. Can't miss taking a photo of this one.

It was cool to see on our bus tour one would not expect to see Joan of arc on a horse in the middle of Philadelphia. It's very cool and all but it's only one of three originals that were cast one being in France and one being in Canada and of course number three here in the city of... More

While driving several times along Kelly Drive and Pennsylvania Avenue, we noticed this statue. It was difficult to take her pictures inside the car due to the constant changing of traffic lights. We noted that the best place to take her picture is from the elevated grounds of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (along Kelly Drive). It is just a... More

This was a brief stop but quite nice. It was a very good location too where you could rest and take some photos and even picnic.

We saw this statue on our hop on hop off bus tours and laughed when our tour guide referred to her as 'Joanie on a pony'! You can't miss her as the sun catches the gold leaf!

You'll see this sculpture when you make your way to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. You can pretty much take a picture of the statue on top of the Hop-On Hop-Off bus. However, if you want to take a picture with you in it, the statue is in a busy traffic intersection, so timing would be key.

Just before arriving at the Philadelphia Art Museum you will see the newly gold plated Joan of Arc. it is worthy of a picture or two. You can get some great photos from the Hop On Hop Off Bus as it goes to the back of the art museum.
