Frist Center for the Visual Arts

Find enticing exhibits showcasing many forms of creativity.

The exterior of Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville

To the west of Ryman Auditorium several blocks, the landmark Art Deco Post Office building now houses the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. The center hosts traveling exhibitions of all stripes, from Old Masters showcases to cutting-edge installations, plus a special interactive room for children. You never quite know what you'll discover.

In addition, you'll also find a lovely café offering soups, salads and sandwiches for lunch, with outside seating available. You can also head just up the way to Rotier's, a glorious dive that's been in business since the 1940s. Nashvillians are fiercely loyal to the juicy burgers, especially the grilled cheeseburger. It's not on the menu, but make sure to order the milkshake!
