There was a long line of people waiting to take pictures with this iconic sculpture. Watch out for a guy who stands nearby offering to take your picture but for a fee. It's interesting to pass by it on the way to the museum.

As a lover of 80s movies there was no way I could visit this great city without coming to see Rocky! It is easily reached by foot from the city centre so don't miss!

ok, this is quintessential American Kitsch, but hey , this i the Rocky STATUE, so get over it and visit. Usually there is a Rocky lookalike on hand, pretending to be unassuming, who will allow you to have your picture taken with him for a price. But it's part of the experience. Worth a visit, just once.

There was a line outside of a statue. Why? Because some guy who calls himself the Philly Rocky stands next to the statue at times and will allow you to take a picture with him for a small fee. Also, sometimes there is a person who will also take your picture for you for a small fee. I guess it... More

Our 13 year old grandson, checked an item off of his "bucket list" (lol) by running up and down Rocky's steps. He also got his picture taken by the statue. The Hop On-Hop Off Bus stops right in front of the statue. Easy acccess. Good Time.

A long line awaited photos with this statue testifying to the popularity of this iconic landmark. Did not get a photo, but ran up and down the steps!

Located a few metres from the steps Rocky famously climbed in the movie! People do line up to take photos, but everyone is respectful and it doesn't take long.

Do I think it is a work of art? NO Do I think it should be outside the art museum? NO Should have been outside The Spectrum Stadium - now demolished, or in the Italian Market, but until I'm mayor, at the art museum it stands.
