The Parthenon in Nashville

2600 W End Ave Centennial Park

The Parthenon

The Parthenon in Nashville was inspired by the original Parthenon in Athens, Greece. Built in 1897 for the Tennessee Centennial Exposition, the building stands as a testament to Nashville's nickname, the 'Athens of the South.' The Parthenon serves as an art museum and also features Athena Parthenos, a massive statue of the Greek goddess Athena that stands 42 feet tall, making it the largest indoor statue in the western world. Visitors can take guided tours of the building and grounds to learn more about its history and significance.
