I've been to the real one so decided to go to this one also. Both are a marvel of construction, worthy of review. Perhaps the real one is more impressive, but then, this one is... read more

It was a nice day and we caught a taxi from the La Quinta near the Airport to visit the Parthenon. This is an exact replica of the Parthenon in Athens but its in much better condition. On the inside was a statue of Athena which was BIG and impressive also, there is an Art Gallery within the complex. Entry... More

It wasn't what we want to Nashville to see but was definitely an interesting stop. Good chance to share with kids the history lessons on how we used to have 'Worlds Fairs' if nothing else.

It was a quick visit here since our original plan was to go to the Farmer's Market which is just beside it. It rained that day so we didn't really go around.

Very beautiful and breath taking from the outside. The inside, which you must go into on a hot day, is boring! Little Greek history but rather history of Nashville. It is appropriate for building was built for a fair but they really didn't need to allow for so much space to cover wall paintings. Large statue inside was cool but... More

I've been to the real one so decided to go to this one also. Both are a marvel of construction, worthy of review. Perhaps the real one is more impressive, but then, this one is complete. Best observed on a warm day when one can enjoy the extensive grounds surrounding the parthenon.

One of our 3 boys is fascinated by mythology and Greece, so we couldn't pass up the opportunity to come here.

We are so glad we stopped to appreciate this scale replica of the original. The statue of Athena is as breathtaking as the building itself. Definitely worth a hop off the trolley!

We are not touristy, generally, so when we found this we almost did not visit. We thoroughly enjoyed it! We were able to take our dog and had a lot of room to stretch our legs as we walked around the lake and Parthenon. We did not go inside; rather spent our time shooting photos and playing in the shadows... More

A very unique feature of Nashville, very neat to walk around and view the architecture and the great way it anchors the park! Free parking makes it a must.

Some really wonderful art work is displayed in this exact replica of the Parthenon in the old world. Additionally, the larger than life display of Athena is worth the visit too!
