Modelled after the Champs-Elysees in Paris, the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia runs from downtown to the foot of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Forever immortalized on celluloid in the Rocky movies, the museum has a huge collection of art spanning various eras and we were fortunate to visit during the showing of a Picasso exhibit.
Considering neither of us have seen any of the Rocky movies, it seemed more than a little silly for us to pose in front of the statue. There was a long lineup of fans though, including this lady who enthusiastically mimicked the sculpture:
It seems entirely possible that you could spend more than a day browsing each of the halls at the museum. We devoted a little more time to some of the modern pieces, but still had a chance to see most of the older works as well.
