Worth a visit to see what the real Parthenon would look like if you've never been to Greece. The Athena statue inside is amazing

First build in the late 1800's for the world's fair. Eventually build out of sand stone. Identical to the Parthenon in Athens. Nice Park setting. And it's free to visit. If you can't travel to Greece visit the Parthenon in Nashville.

Went walking to Centennial park after a long day at work and saw this landmark. It looked beautiful at night with surrounding lights. Once closed to the building the need for TLC is noticeable. Worth a visit.

Visit after our walking guide told us about it. Wonderful experience that we had not anticipated. Make sure that you spend some time checking out the donated art works and massive statue on the top floor. Hidden gem.

The museum was interesting. It was treasure to see the architecture of the Parthenon. It is amazing to learn about how it was built. The Parthenon is nice and Centennial Park was nice as well.

I didn't go in, but was really amazed on the size of the building! I didn't realize it was that huge!

Totally restored, this beautiful building contains many souvenirs and memorabilia. There is also an interesting exhibit of photographs and another of art. Admission was $4 each, and I felt it was worth the price.

Free parking, giant statue, nice art exhibits and history of Nashville. A good place to get out of the sun and rain too. Not too big to be intimidating for families on vacation or the non-museum lovers in your group.

This is a stunning structure in a picturesque setting. Frankly I was unprepared for how beautiful it was. Don't bother with the museum or guest shop as they are substandard but the Parthenon is a MUST see in Nashville.

Stopped here while out exploring one day. Nice, not to much to see and it's $5 for entrance. Good to see once
