Rules at the Frist Art Museum and other museums are designed to make visiting an enjoyable experience, to protect visitors, and protect the art. We ask for your help. Here are a few simple things you should know about visiting:

  • Please keep a distance of at least 18 inches from the art. There is no touching of any art at any time.
  • Photography is often now allowed in the galleries. Please consult signs in each gallery. Sometimes, there are photography constraints our lenders place on us, and in those instances, we ask your cooperation.
  • We ask that you do not talk on your cell phone in the galleries.
  • There is no food, drink, chewing gum, or tobacco products allowed in the galleries.
  • No large bags, umbrellas or back packs of any type or size. All can be checked in our staffed coat check area.
  • Do not carry children on shoulders.
  • Strollers are allowed in the galleries but they must be pushed by adults at all times.
  • We ask that children younger than 13 be supervised by an adult at all times.
  • Use only #2 pencils to sketch or take notes. No pens are allowed in the galleries.


Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, the Frist Art Museum is a nonprofit art-exhibition center, with approximately 24,000 square feet of gallery space, dedicated to presenting the finest visual art from local, state, and regional artists, as well as major U.S. and international exhibitions.
