Overview

The Rocky Statue and the “Rocky Steps” are undeniably two of the most popular attractions in Philadelphia.

A near constant flow of people arrive daily to snap a picture with the Rocky statue at the bottom of the stairs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and then hustle up the museum’s grand stairway to try their hand at the famous two-arms-raised salute.

Originally created for a scene in Rocky III, the sculpture is a real-life monument to a celluloid hero who endures as a favorite fictional son of the City of Brotherly Love.

Visiting the statue, running up the steps and taking a picture at the top, arms-raised in victory is a must on any first visit to Philadelphia. Consider it a rite of passage.
