Dedicated to all 'Rocky' fans! Be sure to turn the music from that very moment whether in your headphones or all out loud and tribute to Rocky's famous stairs run up to the very museum! It's worth doing!

If your a fan of the Rocky movies definitely go visit. Its not a far walk from the city center so it is not at all out of the way of your daily travel in the city. The statue, is just that a statue where tourists from all over are standing making fists pretending to box. Snap a picture and... More

This was a must see for my husband on our trip. We took the Philly Phlash, which dropped us off right in front of the museum, and the statue was easily located. I'll give you fair warning about pictures here: there are several homeless people who are persistent about taking your picture, no matter how many times you tell them... More

It's just something you almost have to do in Philadelphia. I was mostly surprised by the number of people working out on the museum steps. There was a rat next to the statue ... that was kind of gross. The park in general is beautiful - walk around and enjoy it!

We went to the statue and steps after seeing the rodin museum. They were still taking down the stage and fences from the made in America festival. I think so many people were put off by the cranes and workers that there was very few people there. The museum is beautiful from the outside, the steps were half blocked by... More

This review is less about the statue and more about the steps. My kids and I had a blast going up and down these steps - over and over. The building is beautiful and it's just fun to relive the Rocky thing. Lots of people to see around here as well. A very fun, free attraction - the statue and... More

I took my 7yr old son here before he had even seen the movie. I filmed him running up the steps and now he has watched the movie a number of times. He is so proud that he conquered the steps also

Being a avid film watcher and Rocky fan, it was a dream come true to see the statue and run the steps. Be prepared to be hassled for t-shirts and pictures. There was also a dead-on Rocky clone, good laugh.

The statue is in a shaded corner at the bottom of the stairs near the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Fun to see. Tried to run up the stairs... Hum, I need more training!

Pretty neat to see the Rocky Statue and his feet up on top of the steps. The statue is off to one side and his engraved feet are on the top of the steps. A wedding party was taking photos and we had to wait in the drizzle rain to take photos.
