“You have to run the stairs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Its just something you have to do...

Get your pic with Rocky and run the stairs and jump and shout at the top; dont worry you wont look silly every ones doing it!

As far a parking goes; there is alot right around there for a fee...

“Loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

I love the Rocky films and have always wanted to run up those iconic steps. Posed for pictures next to the statue first. Just ignore the men that stand there offering to take your picture for you. I'd read previous review about how they will take picture then expect you to pay them. Now have a video of myself running up the steps which for me is a dream come true!! If you are not a Rocky fan though you may wonder what the fuss is about so in that case just enjoy the view from the top of the steps looking out across the city. The art museum is a beautiful building too.

“ANYONE who has seen the original movie MUST GO!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We had a ball posing in front of the statue. It is located at the BOTTOM right of the famous Philadelphia museum steps! You don't have to run up the steps to find the statue as we did! Fun bit of Americana!

“Great Photo Op”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

It's a great photo op for fans of the Rocky films. After posing, take a run up the art museum steps like Rocky did!

“Yo Adrienne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

It was great getting to see this statue and the steps where Rocky was filmed. Rocky is a movie that is ingrained in a lot of people's minds growing up. Who doesn't like it? :)
