This surprisingly a very cool landmark and apart of american movie history. This statue is located right by the "Rocky steps" which were also run up in the movie. I would also run the step and complete the Rocky experience while in Philly.

This is an easy drive by site. Parking was tricky. If you can find parking get out and run up the stairs. It was fun!

Always have been a Rocky fan. It is a neat experience to stand with the statue and pose like Rocky! Loved running up the steps just like Rocky! Neat place to see and experience!

I was with a bunch of young teens. I thought the Rocky Statue and steps to the Philly Art Gallery might be lost on them. However, they surprisingly loved taking pictures with the statue and racing each other up the stairs. I even had a 14-year-old boy in my group who did a really funny Rocky impression before he raced... More

This was a must for our family! Having grown up watching Rocky, and having shared the love for the Italian Stallion with our now 11 year old son - this was a must! I have to say, the "underdog" story of Rocky is inspiring! Of all the attractions in the area, this was definitely one of the top for us!... More

The statue is a larger than life version of Rocky. Situated before you climb the steps to the Philly Art Gallery. It's a good statute and many people like to pose with it with silly poses. It's fine to see it if your in the area but don't make a special excursion.

Apparently this statue split the city as to its location, originally on the steps, which upset the artistic balance. It's fun as everyone wants a photo. Beware some odd folk hang around directing and offering to take photos, no doubt looking for tips. Slightly incredible people hand over phones and cameras. The kids love this, but you could have equal... More

It is a destination point. Located right in front of the Philadelphia Art Museum, it is easy to find. Take your picture and then run up the steps, just like Rocky. It is a free activity and fun for anyone who has seen the movie.

Philly's Rocky Balboa Statue After visiting the unique Reading Terminal Market, we drove for some photos with Philly's famous Rocky Statue and the “Rocky Steps” — better known as the Art Museum Steps. A few years ago, my wife and I had our first visit but this time, our family group of six posed with Rocky Balboa's statue located at... More

Of course posing in front of Rocky's statue, with your hands in the air, does feel a bit corny. But don't take things too seriously and enjoy the moment. Walking, or rather, running up the steps is the thing to do, although, didn't see that many people making it to the top. If you love Rocky, or not, it's on... More
