|The Parthenon replica in Nashville|
Inside is an art gallery (not Greek) and upstairs is a giant statue of Athena, gold and gaudy. There are also many, many casts of ancient Greek statues, friezes, and more columns. It was absolutely fascinating! I hope the pictures will help you see it better in your mind's eye, and I think our photos would be excellent to show your children studying ancient history.
