My husband and I enjoyed this unexpected building and display. The statue of Athena and Nike was amazing! I could have spent much more time looking at her! I highly recommend a visit for adults and children!

You can see the physical structure of this building from the adjacent park and it is an accurately restored reproduction of the Parthenon in Greece. For a few dollars, you can visit the inside of the building which houses a giant statue of Athena and gives a detailed history of the Parthenon. This is worth a visit if in Nashville.

Beautiful replica of the Parthenon and Athena the Greek Goddess. Fun place to visit, not just inside in the museum, but even the grounds surrounding. My husband and I used to meet up here when we first met and would have nice picnics and conversations on the lawn. Highly recommend for couples or families looking for a fun and safe... More

Beautiful Park. Very well maintained. The magnificent building structure is awesome. It's something to see for all ages. The statue of Athena on the second level is a sight to see. Recommend it highly. Admission fee is reasonable.

This is probably the only opportunity to see what the Parthenon and the goddess Athena really looked like as the actual Parthenon in Athens will never be completely restored. The Parthenon in Nashville has an interesting history - originally built with wood and plaster for the 1897 Tennessee Centennial Exposition, it was slated to be torn down. However people loved...

We stopped by to see this as a "must see" we found on a touristy site.... It was a beautiful day and there were people having lunch, flying kites, and just hanging out. There was also a flea market going on in the field close by. We were able to get out and stroll around for awhile. It is beautiful... More

Pretty cool to see a full size replica of the Parthenon in Greece. The grounds are beautiful and the architecture of the building is immense.

The Parthenon is easy to get to and fun to explore. It is a miniature version of the actual Parthenon and a lot closer. Our kids really liked it and gave them something unique to experience.
