    Pretty amazing and of course a little weird to find this in the heart of Nashville. Definitely worth seeing.

    The full scale replica of the actual Parthenon is very impressive and a must visit when in Nashville. Inside is a colossal statue of Athena with gilded gold. Closed on mondays.

    The museum is definitely worth the entry price, $6 per person. The paintings inside are beautiful. 'A day at the exposition' exhibit paints a lifelike picture of ancient times.

    Really enjoyed doing this once. I don't think I'll ever do it again, but one visit is definitely worth it, and it's pretty reasonably priced.

    Not the original as in Athens. But actually better because you can see the beauty and what it looked like originally. Truly same size and neat to visit. Don't forget the gardens in the spring.

    The sheer size of this structure as well as the Athena statue inside was breathtaking. Downstairs exhibit was also unique and cool, although no photos allowed in the exhibit hall.

    Great place & worth the stop. Was surprisingly more art & things to look at than we had anticipated there to be. Anticipate spending 1-2 hours if you like art.

    Everything. I may be partial being pagan and loving other multi god religions, but it was a phenomenal experience. Brilliant art, and the actual Parthenon, Athena, and busts were amazing

    Nashville was often called “The Athens of the South,” and to give a visual to this nickname, the Parthenon was built as part of a centennial celebration in 1897. Read more

    Before Nashville was "Music City" it was called the "Athens of the South" due to the large number of universities in the city. Get here by hopping off our Music City Trolley Hop!

    The Parthenon was built in 1897 as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition and is located in Centennial Park. It's definitely worth making the trip to see if passing through or visiting Nashville.

    I was super excited to find out this place existed. But I was bummed to find out it was closed when we got there and couldn't go inside. But the outside was nice. Took lots of pics.

    Bring a beach chair and laptop for a wonderfully peaceful place to work amongst the columns. The north side gets less sun making it nice even in the mid-80s. Move to the south side in cooler weather.

    After checking in at the Parthenon on 4/16 don't check in anywhere else until 6 or 6:30 or you won't be counted for the swarm.
