The full scale Parthenon is a great attraction for cheap money and get a photo you normally wouldn't. $6 for adults. $4 for kids. Small musuem and art gallery down stairs. Massive Athena statue upstairs. Located in Centennial Park.

The best part is the statue of Athena and that's it. We got lucky and visited when a choir group was visiting and the sang like angels but that's not part of the tour, just something that happened by chance.
