Tips from locals
Run the steps just like Rocky (after getting a picture with his statue of course). Also just a great museum.
World renowned collection of art and artifacts and home to the Famous Rocky Steps and Rocky Statue. Absolutely not to be missed!!
The Rocky Steps... and tons of gorgeous art and views! Free on Wednesday!
Admission is $20 for a two day pass and you just might need it as the museum is large. It is pay as you wish on the first Sunday of every month and Wednesday nights and always free to kids 12 and under. There is free street parking north of the museum and $12 in the museum's garage with…
Ya gotta run the steps! Sit on top of the steps to watch the sunset or rise over the city! Probably my favorite thing to do!
The Rocky Statue and the Rocky Steps are two of the most popular attractions in Philadelphia

“A great place for locals and visitors, especially if the weather is bad out. An overwhelming selection of food stands and restaurants, mixed in with shops along with produce and butchers, fishmongers, and other sources for a great home cooked meal. On Saturdays the Amish bring their goods as well. Prepare to spend a few hours here, and come hungry! On top of that Chinatown is across the street, if you're in the mood for asian food. Not just Chinese, but Japanese, Korean, and Burmese as well.”

“Largest of four city parks offering great shopping (off Walnut street) and dining options. Pop into Parc for a bite and a cocktail at Steven Starr's flagship Art deco-inspired French Eatery (18th/Locust). Or simply sit on a park bench and enjoy people-watching (and puppy-watching). Grab a book at Joseph Fox's Bookstore (Walnut/17th) and settle into La Colombe (Walnut/19th) for an unforgettable cup of coffee.”
