Can I take photos inside?

Photography is allowed inside the Parthenon but only on the Athena level. Photography is not allowed inside the art galleries (the lower level).

When you visit the Parthenon, take some time to stroll the surrounding Centennial Park and Lake Watauga. It’s very beautiful and alive with joggers, picnicking families, and casual afternoon soccer games.
