  • What a beautiful art museum! The architecture in this building is gorgeous. The exhibits were interesting and timely. My daughter and I truly enjoyed being here. And the ladies bathroom was very uniquely designed. I really appreciated this visit. 😀😀😀

  • Frist cares about the details and their exhibits are well planned, which guarantees captivating experiences. Even the building itself is an artifact, since it is a historic, former post office. That makes for a great architectural exploration as well, but it also makes it a little bit harder to get around on the second floor. All together, well worth a visit. Their food and staff are great too!

  • Pretty good museum. The building architecture is very cool. Pro tip: You can go for free if you have your ticket from the Country Music Hall of Fame. That was a pleasant surprise that didn’t come up in my trip research. I liked the photography exhibit.

  • Great cultural center. Brings in a diverse selection of exhibits and the building itself is interesting to explore. Staff has always been friendly and last I visited, they had live music on Thursdays in the cafe part of the building. Highly recommend for a nice evening out.

  • A membership to the Frist is an excellent birthday/anniversary/Valentines gift. Students under 18 are free and graduate students or university students or teachers get discounted rates to purchase the membership. The Frist has attractive and intriguing travelling galleries that come through seasonally, so there's almost always something new happening every few months. While there's displays and art exhibits that come and go, you'll always be treated with kindness by the staff and you'll be sure to find something intriguing in the exhibits. Last fall, they had an exhibit from the British Museum featuring Rome, and my wife and I went on three different dates to visit and explore for about an hour-hour and a half each time and we never completed seeing all they had in that exhibit. I also have taken my kids on the weekends to do some art in the children's section. I'm always grateful for the artists they have who work with the kids. Very grateful for the Frist and what they bring to our Nashville community!
