Parking is at a premium in our area, but there are other lots close by. Unfortunately, the Frist Art Museum does not control them, nor are we able to validate tickets from them. There is a parking lot on Tenth Avenue directly across the street from Cummins Station. There is also parking available in the Gateway Parking Lot behind Union Station, accessible from an entrance just past the Flying Saucer restaurant on Tenth Avenue.
