Nice little museum to stop in. I had a relaxing stroll looking through the artwork. There wasn’t a lot of people so it was easy to see what I wanted.

Nashville? Yes, it is in Nashville. A little unknown diamond that must be seen. You will think you blinked your eyes and were in Greece.

The history part was cool. Then Nashville decided to add local touches and have parts like the statue of Athena and the big doors were all created by local artists. These are not replicas. Also, it’s filled with random artwork not related to the Parthenon.

The Parthenon was so nice from the exterior there was a gentleman playing the saxophone and we got you some nice Jazzy blues and it echoed throughout the Parthenon and then we walked around the park which is very calm and relaxing .

If you can’t make it to Athens Greece - this is the next best thing! What a fun place to explore and true to scale. I’ve been fortunate to see both!

Didn't know this place even existed. Very interesting place. Not too expensive for families either. Awesome art inside and I am not even an art person. Athena statue was amazing. Kids even enjoyed it.

Absolutely gorgeous! Really kind of a random thing, but it is still beautiful. Set in the middle of Centennial Park, with beautiful open spaces around it where people picnic, walk dogs, play soccer, etc. It’s so nice to see people using a park and walking...More

It is very grand and a good replica of the original Parthenon you can see in Athens (Greece). We did not go inside and just walked around the park and saw the structure

Either way you should not have difficulty getting a ticket, the money is well spent to run this facility.
