It is really cool to see in person and get to walk around it in the beautiful park. It was a bit rainy, but we still enjoyed it.

I was too cheap to spend the money to go inside, but we visited the outside during a recent visit to Music City. Beautiful architecture and story behind the construction (and re-construction) of this Greek classic. The Parthenon sits within beautiful Centennial Park, and should...More

It is a full size replica, really nice park it is in. Really cool inside as well. Some art stuff in lower level but upper level has the history of how it came about.

The most impressive thing was the huge statue of Athena. The rest was a little underwhelming... they should not be charging an admission fee to enter.

Nice scale reproduction of the real thing, but it is of course in much better shape. Low admission price and informative museum make it worth it. Located in a nice park with a nice duck pond.

Not a good experience. Other than the building nothing of interest to see. Just one large statue. The museum is old school with poor lighting. Don't waste your time.

Excellent exhibit upstairs the Athena statue is HUGE and well worth the visit there was an art exhibit downstairs with fruit and cheese but the real deal was the 2nd floor

We had a little extra time in Nashville and decided to visit. I had never been interested in seeing it, but I'm so glad I took the time. This structure is amazing.

Took a side trip to the Parthenon just to see what it was like. The immense statue of Athena is overpowering with a 6 foot Nike in her hand. It is an immense reproduction and interesting to visit. It also contains a decent gallery of...More
