Parthenon Detail Replica and Ruins - Centennial Park

Parthenon detail replica

Inside Nashville's Parthenon is this smaller replica of Greek Mythology figures that adorns the top of one of the sides.

Nashville Parthenon "Ruins"

some of the "ruins" from the original castings of the Parthenon in Centennial Park. These ruins now are on the inside of the Parthenon.

Most of the time the Parthenon is open to the public, or during regular operating house, it is open as an inexpensive museum. On the lower floor, which is mostly an art gallery, you're not allowed to take pictures. However, in the large room, you are allowed to take pictures of this, or more likely, the Athena statue.

TIP: Don't want to pay the $4 to get in? Go to the Parthenon website, and look under the Events Calendar. Sometimes, they have free concerts inside.
