Pretty cool to see

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.

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

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.

Poised in the middle of Nashville's Centennial Park is a full scale replica of the Parthenon. The Replica had originally been built as a temporary structure for the Tennessee Centennial, in 1897, but was rebuilt of more permanent materials in the 1920s. A trip through the initial hallways to glimpse it's history, then passing through the impressive art gallery and... More
