Ok, it's just a statue but it is fun to stand in front and pose like Rocky for a picture. Just a few steps away are the steps he ran up and down for the movie, we had to give that... read more

The statue is exactly what you think- a statue of Rocky. Nothing more. As a moderate fan of the movies I'm not sure the long queues are worth it, but I can see the lure for die-hard Rocky fans. You have to get a picture with the legend! Budget your time for a line and a quick photo op when... More

Rocky statue is unfortunately not located on top of the steps but at the bottom and to one side. Doesn't mean there is not a queue to get a photo in front of this undamaged and good likeness of a statue. Compulsary to visit along with Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.

Living history of Philadelphia, Rocky Balboa films and stairs up are always in our mind. All around is full of Museums, Library and Culture centers.

Poor Rocky has been moved around a bit, but I think he's found a home now. Not really a huge deal, unless your a big Rocky fan (I am).

Must visit for a Rocky Balboa fan. Situated close to the Art Museum, this statue does bring out the Rocky in you.
