Preserved from the World's Fair in 1897, The Parthenon is a great place is see in Centennial Park. Only a 10 minute drive from the downtown area, it's a good spot to get away from the bars and music for just a bit and breath in the nice southern air while learning about the World's Fair. Walk around the structure,... More

Lived in Nashville for several years, with daily treks past the parthenon. It's fine overall. It's scale is pretty cool, but it's made of an ugly-ish concrete mix that takes away from the experience a bit. Museum inside small, and not really worth the cost.

The actual Parthenon in Athens is, of course, better. But hey--this is closer. And only in Nashville can you see an actual sized statue of Athena based on what historians believe the Greek statue looked like! She big and she's awesome. Go see it!

I have a son that is really into Greek gods and he really enjoyed the Parthenon and Athena statue inside.

We have been here many times but I just had to go back again in January. We love the Parthenon. Brings back a lot of old memories years ago.

Centennial Park is where the Parthenon is located and while there seemed to be somewhat limited parking within the park, I'm sure there is street parking nearby. The Parthenon's history is wonderfully laid out, just past the ticket counter, as a small museum that takes about 5-10 mins to walk through (depending on how fast/slow you read). Then there is...

Really fun to see and explore - make sure you bring some water bottles on hot days. Excellent place to have a picnic lunch with your family or s/o

Beautiful architecture, arts, artifacts, historical data. The replica of Athena was breathtaking! ancient Greek details are evident throughout. Also, the home to Nashville's art was well worth the visit.

Just go. The entrance is downstairs and tricky if you don't know where you are going. It's a little piece of quirky that I had no idea was there. Small gift shop for the Greek Mythology lover. I picked up some trivia cards. Free to see from outside, admission fee to enter.

I really enjoyed this attraction. I loved reading about the history on the inside and seeing the beautiful statue of Athena. Very Educational and Very Cool (also not expensive, only $6 for adults).
