Everyone must run these steps at least once in their life! Just like Rocky did in his movies. The statue is being renovated but is gorgeous! (We love you Rock! - And I love yous too!)

I've been to the art museum many times. The setting is majestic atop a hill along the banks of the Schuylkill River and at the end of the Ben Franklin Parkway. The Rocky statue is just at the bottom of the museum steps made famous...More

This fountain has been in several movies and is besautiful! There is a lot of construction going on in this area so be careful.

Famous for the scene in "Rocky", this museum is so much more than the "Rocky Steps and Statue". Take time to peruse the amazing displays inside.

Access to public parking good. The museum work and exhibits excellent. Well worth the visit. I rank it as one of the best in the country with the buildings architectural being as much of an art piece as the contents it holds. Two thumbs up.

I visited with and art student and it helped me gain a better understanding. One piece of advice I was given was to read the descriptions next to the art pieces. It helps.

This art museum is one of the best in the world. The permanent collection needs a visit for itself. I especially enjoy twentieth-century American artists Edward Hopper, Horace Pippin, Marsden Hartley, and Charles Demuth and Philadelphia scenes by Thomas Eakins. The special exhibitions are unique...More

Whatever you do, go to the japanese tea house and the remains of the spanish monastery. There is also an incredible collection of Greek and Roman and ancient world art. Then there is the 20th century art - one of the greatest collections in America.

Not necessarily. The best bargain is Sundays, when you get in free, or pay what you like.

Sorry, I really can't answer that. In my experience though, right when a gallery or museum opens is usually the best time and then again around 5pm. Tours usually show up around 10am and most people will be heading off to... More
