This was definitely cool to stop & see. You can have a picnic on the lawn and there are picnic tables there too. Great for photos too!

Pretty magnificent, and if you haven't been to Greece this is way less crowded and worth a visit. Nice parkland area

This building is a beautiful structure. The paintings were an added bonus. The gold statue was huge and fun to get to see.

Pretty cool structure, and makes for an excellent photo app. We had easy parking, and could walk right up. It appeared there was a gift shop or museum portion, but it was closed. Still pretty cool to check out.

If you're into Greek history, this is a must visit. If you like art, this is a must visit. Otherwise very good. Park is nice and an interesting place.

Being a history buff I always wanted to visit this museum. I finally got tot go for my birthday last year. It was a wonderful experience, especially getting to see the replica Athena statue. As amazing as the museum was I enjoyed the scenery outside of it even more so. I recommend going if you're a fan of Greek mythology... More

The initial exhibit about the exposition, where the Parthenon replica was originally built, was enlightening. Appropriate attention was given to address differences between modern and late 1800s attitudes about race and cultural superiority. We walked quickly through the art exhibit, as it was not very interesting to us. The statue of Athena is amazing.

We took in the Parthenon for something to do, it was very average, and it was something we found was a little disappointing.
