Bottom Right

Tucked away amongst the bushes at the bottom right of the Rocky Steps, or the steps up to the Philadelphia Museum of Art as it were, it is a busy photo op stop nonetheless.

If you are lucky enough to find yourself in the city of brotherly love, a must is to stop by the Rocky statue only AFTER you run the steps of the Art Museum just like Sly did in the movies.

The statue was used in one of the 92 Rocky movies and some clever person said "put it up for keeps in Philly" and sadly, it happened. Originally in S. Philly by the sports complexes, it got unfortunately moved to the front of a world-class art museum where it resides as a wart on a beautiful lady. Yeah, go on.... More

Walked about 30 minutes or so to get to the famous Rocky steps and Statue. Everyone running up did the famous victory salute like Rocky, it was very motivating. There was a small line in front of the statue but everyone was very respectful in giving everyone their moment of glory next to the star. A must see if visiting... More

Stopped by on our way to the Art Museum. There were men trying to get us to give them our camera so they could take our photo. My camera doesn't go in anyone else's hands! This was nothing more than bullying. When we declined, they started dropping a lot of f-bombs. This is a security issue as the statue is... More

So it's just a statue, and it's somewhat out of the way, but you still have to do it because it's just something you do when you are in Philly!

If you're in Philly then you've got to stop at the Rocky Statue! Be leery about men asking to take your photo for you, they usually request money after taking the photo.

The Italian Stallion. You must take a picture with him and run the steps! A must-do thing! and do not forget to buy on of these "Rocky " shirts that are sold next to the steps

Located on the grounds of the Art Museum (near the street). It's a fun photo op, but definitely run the steps and get a good look at the museum, even if you don't go inside (but you really should go inside!)
