I really liked it. There is a small art museum downstairs and upstairs you are in a recreation of the Parthenon including a statute of Athena. What I like about it is it gives you an idea of what it was like inside the Parthenon in ancient Greece. There is a small fee to get in. You do not need... More

An astonishing building/structure and well worth a visit. Massive the very imposing. Car parking free in Cennitenial Park, don't use the Portaloos, completely disgusting and not been emptied or cleaned for ages. Don't visit the Parthenon on a Monday, it is closed.

Visited this site while on a tour of Nashville. This full sized recreation is absolutely stunning. Houses an art museum inside. We saw a lot of famous local sites while on this tour but the Parthenon was one of our favorites.

I got to this park right around dusk, so I did not get to enjoy most of what it had to offer. I did get to go up to The Parthenon, which is quite impressive. It appears to be lit at night, but I was there to take photos, and it was not lit well enough for that purpose. If... More

I had to give this 5 stars because it's a genuine Parthenon in Tennessee. The architecture and details are great. It's got a great statue of Athena on the second floor and art gallery and history on the first. I didn't find it particularly interesting but at $6 admissions it's worth a look.

The Parthenon in Nashville is a modern building which replicates the classic Parthenon in Athens. It is just there sitting in a park setting, completely accessible and well maintained. The scale of the building is amazing. While other people may suggest just drive by, actually get out and walk among the columns, feel the stone and understand what makes this... More

We enjoyed seeing the size of this replica, it takes you back to a time of long ago. The walk in the park was fun, nice pond, statuettes and gardens. Just look out for the rabbit holes, they'll drop you if you step in it.
