Frist Center for the Visual Arts
919 Broadway, Downtown
The Frist has an entire gallery—the Martin Artquest Gallery—devoted to art activities where children can come by every day between 10 and 5:30 and on Sunday starting at 1pm. There are thirty decked out stations set up for kids to experiment with different media including drawing, sculpting, printmaking, and even filmmaking with toy dinosaurs, plastic animals, and big toy spiders.
Mike’s Ice Cream
129 2nd Ave, Downtown
Mike's has murals on the wall that remind you of a soda fountain, and tall bar chairs with coiled backs. Plus, perfect sundaes: Not too large, made with good vanilla ice cream, drenched in chocolate and peanuts, and topped with just the right amount of toffee.
Nashville Public Library
615 Church St., Downtown
Here, there's storytelling on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, and marionette shows on Fridays and Saturdays. Stories are presented by a cast of wacky characters including “The Professor” who not only reads but gets sing-alongs, and lots of rainbow drawings going too. The professionally crafted marionettes at the library are something special, made by a master puppeteer named Tom Tichenor. GP's kids got to see “The Princess and the Frog” but the shows change often and throughout the year.
