Parthenon Sculptures

Sculptures from the Parthenon can be seen in the
       British Museum,
       New Acropolis Museum, Athens,
       Musée du Louvre, Paris,
       Vatican Museums,
       National Museum of Copenhagen,
       Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna and
       Glyptothek Museum, Munich.

When Lord Elgin brought back the sculptures he had taken from the Parthenon, he created a museum in London which enabled artists to see the sculptures for the first time in detail in the original. The site of the museum is now The Hard Rock Café!
