I was so glad to squeeze the Museum of Art in my Philly itinerary when I visited Philadelphia, since I was aware that the famous Rocky Balboa statue was implanted here, as well as the famous Rocky steps as featured in the movie. I had fun watching the statue and other tourists taking pictures and posing as Rocky along with... More

The statue of Rocky is a free attraction in front of the Art Museum. If you are a fan of the movie it's something neat and nostalgic, if you're not, well then not so much. But if you are there already go in the museum.

Great free attraction, a lot of the tour buses stop here so it's easy to access, and always has a small crowd around it. If you're a fan of the movie, it's worth a stop. Occasionally a Rocky Personator will be there posing for photos and a lot of locals will offer to take pictures for you. Be warned: they... More

For all the Rocky fans out there, you really need to take a few minutes to take a picture in front of the statue for a few poses. After that, make sure to experience the run up the stairs and experience the taste of victory awaiting you at the top!

Fun place to stop by for a picture if you are in the area visiting the museum. Just as a heads-up - there was a guy there who was offering to help people take their pictures and then when he was handing back their phones/camera, he would ask for tips. He wasn't pushy if you had someone else in your... More

It's great that such a famous fictional character has been remembered, it brought such attention to Philly in a positive way and it's a great tourist attraction.

I liked the movie and its depiction of Philadelphia but with so much history and culture in the city, this statue seems to be a minor attraction. It's Rocky not George Washington. I wouldn't make a special trip to see this. It is free and to the right of the Art Museum steps.

As much as I enjoyed posing in front of the statue and running up the steps, it is just a statue. Worth visiting if you are in the area, but don't make a big detour for it.
