“Worth checking out!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

While visiting family in Nashville they took us here, this is someplace that you would not think or know about if you just visiting. It cost $6.00 to go inside and the 42' statue of Athena is worth going in for, I'm not a huge history buff but this was really something to see.

If your going to Nashville you should take a hour out to see this, I will never get to Greece so this was cool to see.

“Don't make a special trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

It is certainly worth seeing if you have already paid admission to the Parthenon at Centennial Park - but not worth a special trip.

“Why Would You Skip Athena?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

The Parthenon itself is beautiful. If you're a local, it's a nice place to take out of town guests. Someone wrote a review that said you should see The Parthenon but skip Athena. Are you serious? That's probably the dumbest advice I've ever read on one of these review sites. If you're visiting Centennial, you have to see Athena. She's absolutely amazing. As a Nashvillian, it really gives me a sense of pride. It really shows the city's dedication to art and culture.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Beautiful sculpture! Really enjoyed it! Amazing and beautiful work of art! There is a traveling exhibit downstairs with beautiful oil paintings and information about the Parthenon and Athena sculpture! Closes at 430 on the dot! Only able to take pictures of Parthenon and Athena sculpture, not oil paintings ! Loved it!!

“She is the Queen of Nashville!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I was living in Nashville the day she was unveiled and was at the grand opening...a day I will never forget. I no longer live in Nashville but try to take those who are visiting me to see her. She is exceptional and the history of the Parthenon is terrific. A MUST SEE while in Nashville. You will be in awesome of her size and beauty. GO.
