“When was the Frist Center built? Who was the architect? Can you tell me about the floors in the galleries?” These are just some of the questions answered in the Frist Center’s popular monthly architecture tours. 

Stroll around the Frist Center and learn more about our landmark building from one of our always-engaging docents. Constructed between 1933 and 1934, during the throes of the Great Depression, the former post office is a prominent Nashville architectural treasure from the Art Deco period.

For our visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing
On the first Saturday of each month, certified American Sign Language interpreters will be available for both the 1:30 p.m. Docent Walk-up Tour and the 4:30 p.m. Architecture Tour. Our Docent Walk-up Tours focus on one of the current exhibitions and require gallery admission. Our Architecture Tours explore the Frist Center’s landmark Art Deco building and are free. No advance reservation for either tour is required. ASL interpretation is generously supported by Bridges, a Nashville-area nonprofit resource for deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing communities.
