    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...

    Be ready to pay (I mean tip) the guys guarding (standing next too) the entry to the statue.

    I love Rocky movies i just couldn't leave Philadelphia without taking a pic of his statue. It's a fun thing to see. If you're looking at the stairs, the statue is to the right.

    A little hidden away, but is situated to the right of the stairs to the Museum.

    Iconic. But why did they move it from the top of the Art Museum steps? ;-(

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

    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.

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

    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.

  • Allie I.

    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.

    a little bit far, but we can go

    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.

    Go ahead, kick a tourist!

    Yo Adrian... Hands up and get ready to pose next to a Philly cinema legend.

  • John H.

    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!

    Have a picnic on the front lawn, run up the 66 stairs, dip your feet in the fountain, and enjoy the beautiful city views!

  • IntelWiMAX

    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!

  • North Star ..

    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.
