If you are into Greek replicas then this is for you. It is pretty cool to have a look at. I didn't do the museum part just had a look around outside. Huge and what seems very out of place until you know the story...More

The park surrounding the Parthenon is lovely!! And a great place to walk and enjoy the outdoors!!! The Parthenon itself does not require a lot of time to navigate thru. The Athena replica is lovely and worth seeing !!

Who expects to see a full size replica of Parthenon in a city park in Nashville? Visiting Murfreesboro for conference and found it listed as one of the attractions.

This attraction was not what I expected. The first level is more of a paint gallery. The second floor just had a big replica of a statute.

Worth 30 minutes to see. Not much longer. Spent more time googling history after I left. Across the street from Vanderbilt stadium.
