The park was beautiful and so much to do. The Parthenon was educational but it is limited. The gift shop was limited in up to date graphic souvenirs. There should be more signs leading to the entrance.

Even though it may seem strange that The Parthenon is in Nashville, it is still worth a visit. The museum is 6 dollars and military members and family get in for free. The exhibits in the museum range from artwork to historic artifacts.

You can tour outside the building and park for free. To enter the building costed $6 per adult (small percentage credit card fee may apply). The art was nice and Athena statue are must see. Easily a good choice to spend an hour or two!!!

The Parthenon is huge. It has a 42 foot gold statue of Athena in it as well as other artwork. It costs $6 per person to enter. Very nice and located in Centennial Park.

Me being a history fanatic I had to see the replica of the Greek Parthenon as I will not be in Greece in the near future. The building is amazing and huge, and the grounds around it are well kept. A lot of people went for photo shoots and field trips. We did not go inside as we were passing... More

It may seem very odd to have a replica of a Greek landmark in Nashville and it is odd. But it's a cool thing to check out if you're in the area. It's only $6 and there are art galleries inside not to mention a 41 foot statue of Athena. It's worth the visit.

Nice for sure, but it is a quick tour, so plan to enjoy the park while here, as there are many paths to enjoy the trees and ponds.

So on my first trip to Nashville only saw this via a driveby, that was nothing compared to the actual visit. Walking around the outside there is the gorgeous parks and ponds or lake (dunno which one) haha where u can sit back and appreciate the enormous building. Then inside wow. The art is truly beautiful & the Greek statues... More

A full-scale replica of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece plus a giant statue of Athena to boot. Definitely worth a visit along with Centennial Park.
