The gorgeous art deco post office is the stunning backdrop for the Frist, which has no collection of its own. Instead, the city’s main art museum brings in masterpieces from the world’s major museums for exhibition. If at all possible, sign up in advance for a tour from one of the museum’s docents—they’re a lively and entertaining bunch who have the ability to educate visitors on whatever exhibition they happen to be showcasing at the moment (their enthusiasm is contagious). Free admission for college students with IDs on Thursday and Friday evenings.
