the rocky steps are fine, but when its snows and it does you have to slide down on a slide board, so much fun, I have seen people with same quads slide up and down on the snow and ice ! just be careful though!

Have been wanting to visit for a long time. Last time I was here, it was not out. Now it is on the front right side of the Museum of Art. Get a pic..... Take the steps too and have some fun!!!!!!

Those of us who weren't middle-schoolers (LOL) loved this statue. It brought back nostalgia from the Rocky movie where viewers saw him train on these very steps.

It's touristy but definitely a must do when in Philly. In the winter there wasn't much of a crowd but they said in the summer it gets crazy

Is it corny? Yes. Do you still want to see it? Of course. The statue has been permanently moved to the art museum, right next to the "Rocky Stairs," so you might as well get a snapshot after running up the stairs!

Being able to see and touch the Rocky statue and take a picture of it was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. I grew up watching Rocky every time it was on TV and I’ve owned all the movies on VHS and DVD....More

It’s awesome to see this statue at the foot of the Art Museum steps. There are always people stopping to pose for pictures and admire the statue. It’s great that the city honors and recognizes the significance of the Rocky saga to area fans and...More

My 7 year old ran up the steps with my husband right behind him. They had a great time. I didn't take them on myself because it was raining.

No. Parking might be tough unless you pay around back.
