First of all, the argument as to whether or not the statue is art or just a movie prop is silly. We arrived well before the museum and there were literally bus loads of people... read more

It's a statue, and not much else. I understand that it used to be on the top of the stairs at the art gallery, however now it's at the bottom of the stairs in a garden on the side. There was a man there ready and willing to take pictures of people with it, for a small tip as well.... More

Have you ever seen Rocky? Then you will have seen this statue in the movies, it is fun when you get a chance to check this statue out face to face. It's very surreal.

Going to this area required a long walk but it was worth it. The only complaint that I had was there is a homeless man who would constantly bother people into taking pictures with the statue.

I know this is just a statue. But it is also a symbol. Everyone knows the film and the story of a guy who never gives up. And one can easily believes that it was Rocky IV who ended up the Cold war :) I am a boxing fan and I like Rocky films very much, so it was must... More

Fun to be photographed by the stature if you are a Rocky fan. Nothing more spectacular than that. It is really a diversion from the main and truly marvelous attraction, the Museum.

Best part of my trip. My driver took me by the steps and statue so I could run them before I left. What a treat!

The Rocky Statue itself is much bigger than I imagined. There was only a small line but picked up pose ideas when it was our turn. The steps to the Museum of Art were being decorated for the Thanksgiving Parade but we still managed a run to the top! You can't miss it.

We have to put our hands up and admit that we have never seen one of the "Rocky" films. Nevertheless, it is a fine monument placed adjacent to the famed Steps. With a long queue waiting to be photographed striking the pose, we are clearly missing out. On our return to the UK we will watch Rocky 1 at an... More
