My expectations were high, visiting the Parthenon in Tennessee has been on my bucket list for a few years. I, as well as my 15-year-old daughter were blown away by everything that was offered, the replica statue of Athena and the Parthenon are amazing.

The park is beautiful. You can go I the museum for a small fee. It is interesting. The train was nice for the kids to see. Oh can walk around the gardens and go on the swings.

The Parthenon is really something to behold! The towering statue of Athena is simply gorgeous and you just stand there marveling at what ancient Greece must have been like. The art exhibit was also nice and a walk around Centennial Park which surrounds the Parthenon is also a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. If only the weather... More

We were amazed. Wasn't on our "must do" list, but we're so glad we went and saw it. Very close to Vanderbilt so my husband was happy he could see the athletic fields.

You can get here via public transport. However you get here, it's worth the visit. Take a walk around and visit inside, you'll be amazed at the golden Goddess!

Almost passed up this attraction. I'm so glad we took the time to stop. Impressive is best word to describe the Parthenon and Athena. One of the few attractions that is affordable and truly is an interesting sight to see.

We love to find quirky things on road trips and the Parthenon didn't disappoint!! This life size replica is cheap and everything you would expect it to be. I would highly recommend if you want to try something different. Taleoftwo20somethings.blogspot.com

We didn't pay to go inside, but it was still really interesting to walk around! Very majestic and made me want to go see the real deal in Athens!

The Parthenon interior is a very impressive venue for a special event. Cocktails in the smaller room behind Athena. Main event in the larger room with Athena as the backdrop, columns, etc. is amazing. Staff are very obliging. Need outside catering, etc. Plenty of parking. Park provides lovely photo ops.
