Rocky Statue, Philadelphia

(4/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • mythical statue for Rocky and Stallone fans. A little running of a few km to finish on the steps of the library, it was good fun.

  • 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.
  • Oh man - what a moment. If you're a fan of Rocky, you MUST visit the statue. Just watch out for the guys trying to pick up tips by offering to take pics.
  • Excellent piece of movie history. Plan on taking 10 minutes or so to get your photo with the statue. If you are like me and just want the statue's photo, then stand off to the side on the sidewalk and you can get a great shot as people swap out for their photos.
