The Parthenon stands proudly as the centerpiece of Centennial Park, Nashville's premier urban park. The re-creation of the 42-foot statue Athena is the focus of the Parthenon just as it was in ancient Greece. The building and the Athena statue are both full-scale replicas of th...
The museum is closed on Mondays but it's still cool to see the outside. I wonder what Athena thinks of it.
The museum inside is really nice and the statue of Athena is amazing
Not open on Mondays :(
An amazing and surprising sight to see. Strange, but strangely impressive.
Enjoy the Sun on sunny days-
Great museum - awesome statue of Athena.
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!
Propose to your girlfriend here.
Take a nap on the Parthenon.
Very cool to check out if you can't get to Greece
So cool...go inside to see Athena's statue...this replica blew me away!!!
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.
With your student ID you get a discount, so make sure you have it on you!
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.
Free for active duty military AND their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day!
The centerpiece of Centennial Park, Nashville's Parthenon is an exact replica of the Parthenon in Athens.
The Athena statue was pretty awesome and the park was beautiful! :)
$5 entry with a student card
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!
Closed on Sunday and Monday
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.
Make sure to go in the museum!
not much to see but enjoyed the walkthrough
It's Greek to me
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.

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.
Beautiful scenery at nighttime!
One of the coolest historical reproductions around. This replica has historical significance of its own, too! :-)
Definitely one of Nashville's must see places :-)
It's made out of legos
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!
Great place to have a picnic during nice weather by the pond!
cool park for the kids
For those that can't make it all the way to Greece this summer, this is the perfect substitute.
