I each Ancient Greece

I've been to the real Parthenon in Greece. This is an amazing replica of that ancient temple. It's only $6 to enter.

If you'll never go to Greece and you are already in the Centennial Park, this is your opportunity for a very small admission to see Athena and feel a bit of Antiquity.

I have been here several times over the course of the years. My daughter and I visited, she had not seen the statue because the doors were closing just as we arrived on our last visit.

Huge piece of art and artisan work. Something like 8 pounds of gold the cover Athena. The painted sword she hold and the snake she protecting are also very neat.
