Having not been to Greece I can only imagine how it compares, but since this one isn't falling down it seems a great example of history. To stand in it's shadow is breathtaking. Wide open space for and park for family to enjoy the day.

My girls wanted to see Athena from the Percy Jackson movie. The first floor is art from around the US. I want to say maybe more from TN, but not 100%. The 2nd floor is mostly Athena, with some replicas of Statues in another room....More

The Parthenon is located in a beautiful park. A couple minutes from downtown but for us it was worth it. There is a 12.75 m Athena inside.
