Looks like we are going to have some fun. Anybody recommend/not recommend The Parthenon? That is on our (tentative) list.
I haven't actually been in it, just all around it. ($6 adults, $4 kids, and we are too cheap for our own good sometimes....)
From outside, pretty cool, and full size replica that was never used to store ammunition....
Basically, this is more true to the original than the original is (ignoring the siting). The park in which it sits has a lot of good free music in the summer--especially if you are coming on a weekend.
Another idea (for FUEGO too) is the Hermitage, Andrew Jackson's estate.
I'd recommend against the Nashville zoo--although we were SO spoiled in St. Louis, it is not really fair to compare....
