One of the most memorable movie scenes waiting to be acted out. Download the Rocky theme and run up the steps, you know you want to. The statue is a must in Philly.

Located on the front lawn of the Philadelphia Art Museum. Fun for even a mild Rocky enthusiast. Slight wait for a picture. Everyone was polite.

Visited the Rocky statue in the city centre near to the museum. Visited early in the day but people are actually queuing to get close for a picture.

The Rocky statue and steps are great! Be cautious of the people wanting to take your picture for tips. They can be a little pushy.

We enjoyed getting to see this iconic statue. It's at the bottom of the steps instead of the top and kind of off to the right side in a designated area. Fun for a fan of all the Rocky movies!

It was cool climbing the steps of the museum and having pictures with the Rocky Statue for anybody who grew up watching Sly as Rocky. Just remember, everybody in Philly is visiting this site as well. It was worth the time.

How can anyone go to Philadelphia and not visit the statue as well as running up the steps. The Rocky statue is not at the top of the steps. It is down at the street level in front of the art museum to the right....More

We didn't stay in the city. We stayed in Horsham, where we were able to find a relatively inexpensive hotel that had free parking, breakfast, and wifi. It took us about 30 minutes to drive to Independence Park. If you have a... More
