The architecture of the building is really amazing, as is the statue of Athena. I enjoyed reading the history and seeing some of the memoribilia was fascinating. It's a nice place to stop for a quick visit.

It's worth the short drive to Bicentennial Park to see the Parthenon and the other monuments in the park. A really nice place to walk around when the weather is nice.

Only saw the Parthenon externally and it was an impressive building. When you're in Nashville why not go to see it. After all it is the only replica in the world that stays true to the Acropolis' original size.

We went to Centennial Park for a pick up game of football for our family reunion. The older guys played in front of the Parthenon while the younger kids went to the park. We all got to walk around the building, I wish we had had time to go inside! The Parthenon is absolutely stunning though.
