    You might have to wait a few minutes, but even on nice days you should be able to grab a great pic with the statue. Gonna fly now...

    The Rocky statue was first unveiled in RockyIII and was placed at the top of the Art Museum steps. It has since been moved to its current location at the foot and to the right of the Museum steps.

    Don't miss Rocky at the bottom of the stairs to the right. He can be easy to miss next to his stairs!

    Did you know that the Rocky statue was originally placed at the top of the steps of the Art Museum? Run/walk to the top and see what is left of where he once stood.

    Get your picture taken with Rocky...although it is strange that we have a statue of a fictional character, it defines Philadelphia and no trip here is complete without a photo with Rocky!

    The statue is not necessarily easy to find - just bear right when you face the museum.

    While you are checking out ROCKY make time to go to the PHILADELPHIA ART MUSEUM! It's right behind Rocky (Rocky runs up the Art Museum steps) and home to priceless ART from around the world.

    Homeless people will offer to take your picture in front of the statue for tips. They take really good pictures.

    Look out for guys who ask if you want them to take your picture on your phone or camera. After they help you they ask for money.

    This statue was the same one used in Rocky III, released in 1982. Since you're in a WiMAX hotspot, log into Netflix and stream the movie right here!

    Though we personally don't care for a fictional athlete from 40 years ago, thousands still pose for photos here. Fun fact: though it looks good, Rocky's running route as pictured doesn't make sense.

    Anímese!! aunque no tenga a nadie cerca, le aseguro que algún otro turista se anima a una competencia de quién sube las escaleras más rápido.... Ud, el turista o la sombra del joven Balboa...
