Open for almost 90 years this museum is amazing!  You can spend hours enjoying the entertainment, woodwork, weapons, art & armor.  The size of this museum is massive.  The admission isn’t cheap but it’s still very kid friendly.  And, Yes, those ARE the steps Rocky Balboa climbed during that famous movie scene.  There’s even a statue of Rocky in front of the museum.   We were staying at a hotel downtown.  Although there’s parking, I highly recommend the walk to the museum.  There are other museums and amazing buildings in the area as well as several fountains and statues.  Here is a short video (from my cell phone) and some photos from our visit.


Here are some of the photos we took on the walk to the museum:
