A breathtaking piece of American (and world) History. Peaceful, even with all the people. Magnificent, despite being a copy of the (now sadly ruined) Parthenon of Greece.

What a wonderful opportunity to "visit" Ancient Greece. The structure and scope really takes you there. If you have ever imagined what it was like...

We saw the Parthenon listed among the city's attractions but it wasn't high on the list of things we planned to do. When we realized it was very near our hotel, we walked over one afternoon. The building has an interesting history and is an impressive full-scale replica, but the real attraction is the Cowan Collection of American Art. There... More

The Parthenon is easy to get to, has free parking, and is accessible to the handicapped. We had visited the actual Parthenon in Athens last year, so we really enjoyed seeing this reproduction, which is more complete than the actual ruins in Greece. Explanatory signage is very helpful. Admission price is very low.

Worth the time if in Nashville. Also, price of admission is reasonable. The statue of Athena is awesome! Very interesting info on the original Athena statue and the Parthenon in Greece.

The Parthenon is an exact replica built for a Centennial celebration in 1897. Awe-inspiring in it's size and appearance. It is interesting as a building, less so regarding the displays and art that have been positioned inside. It is also located in a significant park area so it is a "place" where people go for a day trip even tho... More

We purchased tickets for the 2 day hop on hop off bus and this was one of the stops. It was beautiful inside but it wasn't worth the price of admission.

Stopped to take in this site while taking the Gray Line tour, it is a very impressive building and worth the $6 admission if you are into getting some history and background on a different side of Nashville living.
