#travelwithgdp Fact: Screen Junkies named the museum’s stairs the second most famous movie location behind only Grand Central Station in New York.
Description: Like Philadelphia’s own Parthenon, the iconic Philadelphia Museum of Art sits majestically on a rise at the end of the city’s famous Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Besides being known for its architecture and collections, the Philadelphia Museum of Art has in recent decades become known due to the role it played in the Rocky films—Rocky (1976) and six of its seven sequels, II, III, V, Rocky Balboa, Creed, and Creed II. Visitors to the museum are often seen mimicking Rocky Balboa’s (portrayed by Sylvester Stallone) famous run up the east entrance stairs, informally nicknamed the Rocky Steps.
