If the sleek architecture isn't enough reason to visit the Frist Center, then the art exhibits and the family-friendly Martin ArtQuest Gallery are likely to pull you in. It's all housed in the former main post office, which was built in the early 1930s and is a fabulous example of the Art Deco style; an architecture tour is offered the first Saturday of every month. The Frist has no permanent art collection, instead debuting a new main exhibit every few months. At the 30 hands-on stations in the ArtQuest Gallery, kids can explore and make art. Free live music is performed on Thursday and Friday evenings.
