“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.

The Nashville Downtown Partnership will provide a free shuttle between the Frist Center's Architecture Tour and the Fifth Avenue Galleries from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. on the first Saturday of the month. You can park in the Frist Center parking lot and ride the shuttle to the First Saturday Art Crawl.  For more information on parking visit www.parkitdowntown.com.


Schedule (offered the first Saturday of the each month). All tours at 4:30 p.m.
