Tennessee Hotel Reservations
Standing in Centennial Park since 1897, the Parthenon is Nashville’s own replica of the Greek temple honoring the goddess Athena.
The Parthenon replica was originally built as part of Nashville’s Centennial Exposition. It stands today with its own replica of Athena inside as well as replicas of sculptures that were found in the Athenian Parthenon. The building also houses the Nashville art museum with a collection of 63 paintings.
Visitors to Nashville will enjoy the urban setting of Centennial Park and the views offered of the Parthenon upon the grassy hill on which it sits. The shade of the trees that surround the Parthenon is the perfect place to have a picnic or take a walk after touring the inside of the Parthenon.
