A little cheesy inside, but what a beautiful setting. Great history and beautiful picture taking. Nice walk around the pond. Beautifully maintained park. Great for a picnic.

I'm a huge history buff and my favorite era is Ancient Greek and roman so this was right up my alley. Obviously this is a reproduction, but it is well done and too scale. Really gave you a sense of awe. Can't miss quick stop while in Nashville.

This is a great photo object in Nashville. It's a true replica of the original in Greece. It's also a nice park here to walk around overlooking this spectacular piece of architecture. Get inside to see a statue of Athena.

Incredible site. Impressive look alike of the actual building. Had a museum in the basement for a small fee. A must see in Nashville.

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.
