Since the 1930s the Parthenon has continued to host changing art exhibitions in its galleries and to educate both Nashvillians and visitors about the legacy of the ancient Greeks and their impact on American civilization. We are owned and operated by the Metropolitan Board of Parks and Recreation, a Department of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County.

Their mission is to:

  • Educate the public concerning the Parthenon and the civilizations which built it, both in Athens in the 5th Century BC and in Nashville, Tennessee, from 1897 to the present;
  • Exhibit, collect, and care for objects and information related to 5th Century BC Athens, the Tennessee Centennial Exposition, and the rebuilding of the Nashville Parthenon; and
  • Exhibit, collect, and care for visual art and to educate the public concerning its various forms.

The Centennial Park Conservancy is the Parthenon’s support organization and works to preserve and enhance the Parthenon and Centennial Park while presenting enriching programming to share these two Nashville treasures with our community and visitors.

Before visiting the Nashville Parthenon and Centennial Park, please review the park construction and social distancing guidelines.
