Statue is pretty average unless you are boxing fun, but the tradition to exercise on the museum stairs nearby it quite a site, when a lot of people run up and down the stairs. :)

This statue looks exactly like in did in the movie and I was ready to go as soon as I laid eyes on it. The only thing that kept my wife and I there for the next 5 minutes was the ridiculous spectacle that people were making in front of the statue as their picture was taken. Don't get me wrong, its interesting to walk by and say, "Hey there's the statue from Rocky!" just don't go too much out of your way. Its one of the attractions in Philly that you safely miss if you had to.

While a little over visited it still remains a piece of Philly. What you think it is is what it is... If you are into the Rocky movies you will like it. And if you are going to the Museum of Art.. Why not stop and see it?!

The Rocky steps are located on the East side of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Everyone was running them and doing the Rocky pose at the top. It was a lot of fun!

I am a local here and there is often a few guys hassling tourist for a buck by taking your picture. Ignore them, they have been really bothering people for money . I wish the city would do something about this .
