"When was the Frist Art Museum built? Who was the architect? Can you tell me about the floors in the galleries?"

Start your evening with the popular tour of the Frist Art Museum’s historic 1934 art deco building, led by our volunteer docents. Built during the Great Depression as the city’s central post office, this architectural treasure reopened as an art museum in April 2001.
 

For our visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing
On the first Saturday of each month, certified American Sign Language interpreters are available for both the 1:30 p.m. docent-guided exhibition tour and the 4:30 p.m. Architecture Tour. Our Docent-guided tours focus on one of the current exhibitions and require gallery admission. Our Architecture Tours explore the Frist Art Museum’s landmark art deco building and are free. Reservations are not required for either tour. ASL interpretation is generously supported by Bridges, a Nashville-area nonprofit resource fordeaf,hard of hearing, and hearing communities.
