    The museum is closed on Mondays but it's still cool to see the outside. I wonder what Athena thinks of it.

    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!

    This is a great place to share, learn, take photos, and relax. Next best thing to being in Greece. The staff are very nice, it's the exact replica as to the Parthenon in Athens.

    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.

    The centerpiece of Centennial Park, Nashville's Parthenon is an exact replica of the Parthenon in Athens.

    Don't go on Sunday or Monday if you want to go inside.

    This is a great deal! As of writing this, the admission was $6. To do the whole thing doesn't take that long, and it was very impressive to see.

    If you can't get to Greece, Nashville's Parthenon is definitely the way to go!

    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.

    For those wondering what the hell a replica of the Greek Parthenon is doing in Tennessee, visit this. Your questions won't be answered but visit it anyway.

    Help keep your trees at home as beautiful as the ones in the park! We are Nashville's leading tree doctor/tree arborist.

    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.

    I'm not real impressed with the current art exhibit, but there will be something different to see, the next time we go.

    Be sure to visit the beautiful gardens in the park, too.

    Oddly enough, Athens has an exact replica of Hank Williams' birthplace.

    One of the coolest historical reproductions around. This replica has historical significance of its own, too! :-)

    The Parthenon itself is an amazing structure, but the Athena Parthenos inside is absolutely breathtaking!

    Just plain cool. Only one other place like it, but this one is in a better condition :-)

    We stopped in on a road trip down to Texas from New Jersey and it looks the same as in the movie Percy Jackson and the Lightning thief!
