Replica Parthenon: Why is this here?

Replica Parthenon and Statue of Athena

Parthenon exterior is free to walk around; there is an art museum fee to get inside. We just walked around it, but it was a fun 20 minute stop.

Our family enjoyed this, especially since the movie Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief was filmed around the exterior, and the large statue of Athena from the movie was inside. Have to pay to go inside, but worth it!

Even at night, the Parthenon is available to view, and I must stay is wonderful when it is all lit up! So if you are passing through in the dark it is still worth a look!
