Tips

  • For those that can't make it all the way to Greece this summer, this is the perfect substitute.
  • The Parthenon was built in 1897 as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition and is located in Centennial Park. It's definitely worth making the trip to see if passing through or visiting Nashville.
  • The centerpiece of Centennial Park, Nashville's Parthenon is an exact replica of the Parthenon in Athens.
  • Oddly enough, Athens has an exact replica of Hank Williams' birthplace.
  • Go upstairs and take a picture in front of the Athena statue!
  • It's Greek to me
  • For those wondering what the hell a replica of the Greek Parthenon is doing in Tennessee, visit this. Your questions won't be answered but visit it anyway.
  • Bring a beach chair and laptop for a wonderfully peaceful place to work amongst the columns. The north side gets less sun making it nice even in the mid-80s. Move to the south side in cooler weather.
  • We stopped in on a road trip down to Texas from New Jersey and it looks the same as in the movie Percy Jackson and the Lightning thief!
  • Awesome!!!!
  • Don't go on Sunday or Monday if you want to go inside.
  • Be sure to visit the beautiful gardens in the park, too.
  • Really awesomr
  • It was beautiful unfortunately it was closer when we went so we just saw the outside don't go on Mondays
  • Propose to your girlfriend here.
  • So cool...go inside to see Athena's statue...this replica blew me away!!!
  • The Athena statue was pretty awesome and the park was beautiful! :)
  • Help keep your trees at home as beautiful as the ones in the park! We are Nashville's leading tree doctor/tree arborist. www.SafeArbors.com
  • One of the coolest historical reproductions around. This replica has historical significance of its own, too! :-)
  • Definitely one of Nashville's must see places :-)
