The Parthenon structure is impressive on it's own. The statue of Athena demands attention. One can't help but look and be impressed by the size and scale. The artwork on display is enjoyable and perhaps a bit out of place for the spectacle of the...More

We were impressed to see the size of the Parthenon and the attention to detail of this replica. Then to see some monuments and sine age explaining some of the women’s suffrage movement, was a bonus.

This was very interesting. The Athena statute was huge. I think the other thing my daughter really like was the hands on drawing area. This is in the beautiful park which is a must to see during your Nashville stay

I only had time to see it from the outside but made for a fun photo opportunity. I would love to go back and tour the inside, which I believed as an art gallery. Next time Nashville!

The re-creation of the 42-foot statue Athena is the focus of the Parthenon just as it was in ancient Greece. The building and the Athena statue are both full-scale replicas of the Athenian originals. This is a gorgeous place to visit and very educational. Centennial...More
