Rocky Statue, Philadelphia

4.0
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.

  • So cool!! Fictitious character that becomes a city icon. As a huge Rocky fan all my life this was so cool too be at. Small line - a guy that I don't think officially worked there kept it in fast order and took pics. I was happy to tip him for being useful even if it was unofficial work haha
  • 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. ✌️
  • Pretty sweet statue. You can fit it in a landscape photo if you shoot from the ground at the bottom of the fence.
  • One of the iconic attraction of Philly...locals or tourist all make sure to click pictures and selfies with the statue...
  • Love it. A must in Philadelphia. It is a pity it is hidden and the trees are so overgrown.

Where to stay in Philadelphia

Most of Philadelphia's hotels cluster around the compact city center, ensuring quick and easy access to major tourist sights and activities. The only drawback to staying in this area is the lack of free parking, so if you're exploring by car, considering booking into a bed and breakfast in one of the city's residential blocks. Visitors planning on longer stays can also consider several apartment hotels, offering spacious furnished units with complimentary Wi-Fi, free bike rentals, and access to rooftop terraces.
