Monument
Take a photo with the bronze replica of one of film's greatest boxing heroes at Rocky Statue, located at the base of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This statue was created for Rocky III, and after the movie was finished, Syllvester Stallone, the actor who brought Rocky Balboa to life, donated it to the City of Philadelphia. Now, the statue stands at the bottom of the stairs, known as the “Rocky Steps." Run to the top, recreating the iconic moment in the underdog's training montage, and take in a view of the city as you feel the rush. Remember to pack your camera and running shoes before you head out to pay tribute to Rocky.

  • The statue of Rocky is 8 feet tall and sits to the right of the stairs Stallone climbed in the movie as he was training. The place is huge!  more »
  • We took pictures with the statue and of course ran the steps too! Nice fountain at the top and beautiful statues across the street. Great picture opportunity at top of steps.  more »
  • It is what it is A Statue. But when you are in Phillie I guess you need to view the statue. Don't miss the other one in the visitors center and have a picture taken.  more »

  • TIP: HEY ADRIAN! I'M BACK! As of 06/14/2017, The Rocky statue is open to the public......... The area around the statue is fenced off and there might be gates by the entrance to the statue. Does this mean Rocky will not accept visitors at certain hours? I'll update soon. The Rocky Statute is closed to visitors due to restoration for two weeks from 05/30/2017. Also, don't get caught by a couple of people hanging in the area to take pictures for you, because they want your money in return; unless you like to help out. ✌️
  • One of the iconic attraction of Philly...locals or tourist all make sure to click pictures and selfies with the statue...
  • Put on the "Rocky" theme tune on and re-create the famous scene! I didn't see one person 'walk' up those steps - from young kids to grandparents - all ran or jogged up them. The statue is now located to the bottom right of the famous steps. A 'must see' for any boxing fans or film buffs!
  • Rocky fan or not, stop to take a picture. Coolest statue. I'm a huge fan of the Rocky movies, so I loved this. Plus it's located in a beautiful part of Philadelphia.
  • Great place to visit and take a pic with the famous Rocky Statue and run up the steps! The Rocky Statue is at the bottom of the steps to the right. The view at the top of the steps is beautiful. There isn't any parking here so most people either walk here or double park and take turns taking pictures.
