The Parthenon is located in Nashville, Tennessee and is a complete replica of the original Parthenon in Athens and how it would have looked in ancient times. The building is the exact size of the original as well as the 42-foot statue of Athena.

It was built in 1897 as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition and has stood there ever since. The building now functions as an art gallery and hosts plays, paintings and other exhibits.

The Parthenon has also been used for scenes in movies such as Nashville and Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. This building is the only one of its kind. The museum is open daily except on Monday.
