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.

This particular street is great for viewing monuments but you have to be careful when you are driving it can be a bit confusing. This is a great statue. Stop and take the time to pull up the story if you don't remember it from the history books. What a brave woman to make a stand.
