The Philadelphia Museum of Art is the third largest art museum in the county with an impressive collection that includes a room for the Thomas Eakins art, a large "Bathers" by Cezanne and administration of the Rodin Museum. The first Sunday each month and Wednesdays after 5 pm you pay what you want as admission. Friday nights feature live jazz or international music concerts. The 72 steps ascending to the entrance are best known as the Rocky Steps after the iconic training scenes in the Oscar-winning "Rocky" and its sequels. A 10-foot-tall bronze statue of Rocky, at the top of the hill when Rocky III filmed, is now at the bottom of the steps.
