Whether you grab a cheesesteak before or after running the stairs, this is a must-stop for any tourist seeking the "Philadelphia experience". After jogging up the stairs and throwing my arms up Rocky-style, I had hoped to get a photo-op next to the statue at the top. But I came to realize, it is located NEXT to the museum. Still... More

I am a HUGE Rocky fan and came to Philadelphia to see the sights from the film. I enjoyed the Rocky statue tremendously and had my photo taken. I could do without the schmucks trying to make a buck off tourists for 'taking a photo.'

Any fan of the Rocky series should spend a bit of their time in Philly to visit the Rocky Statue and climb the famous steps that overlook the city. Its a bit of nostalgia and there is a city worker by the statue that will take your photo by having you pose in about 10 different ways. Then run up... More

The statue is a cute photo opportunity but don't forget to go in the museum. It has an extensive collection. I was surprise by the wide range of art (some quite famous paintings you may have studied in a History of Art course) and they had a lot of neat period set ups to see what rooms or towns around...

The statue is to the right of the stairs and there is a constant line up for a picture. Not much to see but a statue of Rocky but it is a must do when in Philly. Just a word of warning. When we were there a bunch of men were hanging around offering their "help" to take pics of... More

I love boxing and even though a fictional character I still wanted to see where parts of the rocky movie was filmed. They'd been heavy snow but I must give credit to the city officials who made sure that one side of the steps were clear of snow leading up to the Philadelphia museum of art,I do feel guilty that...

Definitely, the highlight of my trip to USA last year. Spent most days in NYC, but the time in PHilly was magical. In fact, I regret of not having booked the Hotel in Philly, instead of NY. If you are a Balboa fan, you will feel it!!! The bad thing: if you wait to take a picture, is possible that... More

The statue of Rocky is located at the bottom of the stairs. I understand it is THE Philadelphia Museum of Art, but can't the Rocky statue be considered art?

My boyfriend and I loved the movie , so we needed to see the statue and the steps that Rocky ran up. It was really fun to see it and take pictures.
