Opened in 2001 as the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, this museum smartly rebranded itself, simply, as an art museum in 2018. Though not technically a “museum” as that only applies to places with permanent collections, the Frist rotates its exhibits from all over the world every few months. Exhibits cover a wide range of topics from Paris in the 1900s to civil rights to steel and car installations. Dedicated to fostering the city’s ever-expanding art community, Frist also offers educational and outreach programs, including those held upstairs in the Martin ArtQuest Gallery. There visitors can explore art experiences through more than 30 interactive multimedia stations. The historic Art Deco building is a showpiece in its own right, and it’s free to visitors 18 and under. Seniors get half-price admission the third Monday of each month, when musical activities such as singalongs are held. And on Thursday and Friday nights, college students are admitted free.
