It's located right outside the Art Museum, so that's even more appropriate. It may be a copy, but it's still a wonderful statue, and it's in absolutely pristine condition. A nice addition to the Art Museum.

Was able to view the statue outside the Art museum. It is shiny and hangs out across from the Rocky statue. Not a destination but an add on if your in the area.

Between the Art Museum and the Museum's Pearlman exhibit center, you will pass it if you cross the beginning of the Parkway to walk from one to the other. Look for the large Orange steel girder Mark Di Suvero sculpture a contemporary piece by a living artist, Walk around both to fully appreciate the works.

A finely designed and executed statue originally installed in Paris in 1874. Its bright gilding makes it unusual and noteworthy. IT is in an excellent area of Philadelphia near the Art Museum, Rodan Museum, Barnes Collection, several other museums and many outdoor artworks. It is a bit challenging to view due to its placement along busy roads but well worth... More

It's beautiful but wouldn't travel out of my way to see it. If you take one of the bus tours, you will see it from the bus. It's a quick photo opportunity at best.

What a phenomenal tribute to one of the greatest saints ever! I think the Maid or Orleans would be pleased! This statue is on a small traffic island just to the north of the Museum of Art. Don't miss this one!

Along the parkway, you can see proudly mounted holding the flag. It is gold color underlying copper. At night when the sunsets, you can see the beauty of this and many others that dot the parkway/Logan's circle. Can't miss taking a photo of this one.

It was cool to see on our bus tour one would not expect to see Joan of arc on a horse in the middle of Philadelphia. It's very cool and all but it's only one of three originals that were cast one being in France and one being in Canada and of course number three here in the city of... More

While driving several times along Kelly Drive and Pennsylvania Avenue, we noticed this statue. It was difficult to take her pictures inside the car due to the constant changing of traffic lights. We noted that the best place to take her picture is from the elevated grounds of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (along Kelly Drive). It is just a... More

This was a brief stop but quite nice. It was a very good location too where you could rest and take some photos and even picnic.
