The building is impressive and the statue inside was worth the price of admission. The park surrounding the building was nice to walk around

My husband and I visited the Parthenon and were amazed at the beautiful architecture. It was nice to experience and little taste of history. Will be going back soon and bringing friends!

Well worth the $6 to view the little museum inside. Centennial Park, where the Parthenon is found, is across from Vanderbilt University, and offers free parking and large park area with a pond and steam engine and jet on display.
