Rocky statue in front of the art museum- a must-do for Rocky fans, but if you’re not a fan you can skip it! Free parking around the back of the art museum is a bit of a walk, but a nice one. Visited on a...More
This statute was moved from place to place within the city years ago for lack of interest, and for some periods it was nowhere in Philadelphia. One day tourists began taking photos with by the statute and it became a thing. Now lines of people...More
Thankfully I got to see this early (930ish). Huge queue by midday. Just to see a nondescript statue ? Quite right that Philly makes the most of this. Worth having a photo taken but not that impressive.
For those of us brought up on the Rocky and now the Creed film franchises this is a must for a photo op
The only thing that truly baffles me is how little Philadelphia promotes this place?
It's a truly iconic place with countless tourists...More

There's some parking behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art, but the Art museum is on a traffic circle and getting to the parking can be confusing if you're not familiar with the area. It's a stop in the Hop On Hop Off buses if you are thinking of doing one of those. The Rocky Statue is to the right of the "Rocky Steps" (the ones people run up like Rocky. There's a nice view straight down the Benjamin Franklin Parkway from the top of the steps. BTW, the Art Museum itself is world class.

Pay only in sweat and shortness of breath. Awesome view of the city. The statue is free too. But there's always a line. Parking is tough. There are meters along the parkway, and pay lots at the art museum and Franklin... More
