“It was fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

It was a cold and rainy day but Rocky lifted our spirits!
Also don't forget to check out his brass converse size nine sneaker prints on top of the steps.
Enjoy!

“C'mon...it's Rocky!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Who doesn't love Rocky??? Run up the art museum steps and get your photo with Rocky at the bottom! Go in the summer and there are sometimes little festivals around the courtyards.

“Is Sylvester Stallone a thing of beauty?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Movie series making a out of luck, down-trodden Philadelphia native into a sports and national hero. Statue itself is only a fair piece of art.

“"Adrian"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

I felt like Rocky!!!!! You watch the movies your whole life. When you see it you are in awe. What a nice statue. To bad the statue is not about a real life character.

“It's a statue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Rodin museum right down the street. This ain't no Rodin, but any day you can see a boatload of people pumping their arms for a cell phone video on top of the museum steps.
