Originally constructed for Tennessee's 1897 Centennial Exposition, a full-sized replica of Athens' famous Parthenon resides today in Nashville's Centennial Park. Its remarkable quality is that it's entirely out of concrete. The building also houses a 42-foot recreation of the Parthenon's Athena statue, the original of which has not survived today. It is a destination unto itself, but also serves as one of the city's top five art museums.
HoursThe Parthenon is open year round Tuesday - Saturday, 9:00 - 4:30. Additional hours during June, July & August: Sundays, 12:30 - 4:30 p.m. The Parthenon will be closed on July 4, Labor Day, the Thursday & Friday of Thanksgiving week, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
