They change between two different exhibits. Serving as an art museum as well, the 39 of the 63 paintings are on display. The collection was donated by James M. Cowan and mostly has 19th and 20th century American artists.

You can also hold events at the Parthenon museum. This is, of course, very costly and can cost from around $2,000 to $4,000. You will receive the benefits of being a member as well. This membership is tax deductible though and 100 percent as well.

The Parthenon of Nashville was built in 1897. The reason behind it was due to the fact that Nashville had many colleges and university with a lot of turnouts. It was known as the Athens of the south. It is a monument to classic architecture. The original sculptures were used to cast the Parthenon Marbles and make the plaster replicas of Nashville’s. They also replicated the sculptures in the original Parthenon.
