The Nashville Parthenon

The Nashville Parthenon is a full-scale replica of the original Parthenon in Athens. It was built in 1897 as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. Athens, Greece isn’t the only city with a classical stone temple dedicated to the arts. Nashville’s Parthenon confirms the city’s place as the “Athens of the South.” The concrete replica of the Greek temple marks the city’s place as a cultural and artistic Mecca. Though country & western music wasn’t an original staple of the original Parthenon, the city has gone to great lengths to incorporate its history with that of the world at large. Today, the to-scale replica of the Greek landmark serves as an art museum featuring not only classical works but also those of modern artists such as Andy Warhol. In the early 1990s, sculptor Alan LeQuire’s “Athena Parnthenos,” a 42-foot statue of the Greek goddess Athena was added to the structure, cementing its place in mid-South culture.

Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is the home of this popular American art form, safeguarding over 2.5 million artifacts, with two expansive floors of gallery space featuring permanent- and limited- engagement exhibits. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is also home to Historic RCA Studio B and Hatch Show Print. It offers three dining and four retail options, all open to the public.

General Jackson Showboat

Your General Jackson Showboat lunch or dinner cruise lets you experience the Nashville skyline as it can best be seen from the beautiful Cumberland River. While “rollin’ down the river,” you’ll enjoy stunning views, a delicious meal freshly prepared by our chefs and toe-tapping entertainment in our two-story Victorian Theater in the center of the boat. One of the largest showboats ever built, the grand General Jackson Showboat is an elegant triumph of American ingenuity. With its elegant lacy filigree and stately design, the boat is reminiscent of the opulence of the American Victorian era. Showboats have long been a colorful part of our nation’s history, and this most unique Nashville attraction epitomizes the grace and grandeur of the Old South. The General Jackson Showboat is named after the first steamboat to operate on the Cumberland River in 1817 which was named after President Andrew Jackson, whose historic home—The Hermitage—is 15 minutes from the dock. Built by the largest inland shipbuilder in the United States, Jeffboat, located in Indiana, the General Jackson was launched on the Cumberland River on April 20, 1985.
