  • It's in his mansion you can admire the superb collection of works of art: furniture, paint, bronze,... Sorry for the pictures, but banned outside of the patio. You should see this collection as well as your visit to the Metropolitan. Less impressive and faster, but it is the quality of the works. Place or you can stroll quiet, taking his time before all these beautiful things. essential to NY

  • I really enjoyed my visit on a recent Saturday morning to the Frick Collection on the Upper East Side! This beautiful mansion-turned-museum is really wonderful and reasonably priced. You can complete ...  more »
  • The Frick is much smaller than the Met or Guggenheim but no less wonderful. Including works by Vandermeer, Degas, Monet & Rembrandt the collection is just the right size to impress but not overwhelm. ...  more »

  • From someone who was born in NYC, I am shocked that I did not know about this Art museum/collection! The place is gorgeous! I love how by just walking into the place you get taken back centuries. They also have a library on 71st. Great, quiet place to learn about the history of Art. They offer so many great exhibits year round. The staff is friendly and well-mannered. The walk to the museum is good too, since The Frick is tucked away in a very well-kept neighborhood of Manhattan (Right next to Central Park! )
  • Very classy, elegant, and poised collection! Went on Wednesday, which happens to be a "pay what you wish" day (2-6 pm). Every piece being showcased had a purpose, and is very delicate at first glance. Upon gazing for sometime, one can find themselves lost in the beauty, the style, and the details. I really enjoyed the limited Washington showcase! Loved how you could follow a timeline of the sculpture! and how it came to be! Definitely would come back again! A fine establishment to say the least!
  • Must have been my greatest discovery in NYC. I went to one of their “ First Fridays “ programs. If you do not know, there is free entry from 6 to 9 pm on the first Friday of every month. I spent an amazing night exploring Henry Clay Frick’s house that he turned into an art collection museum. Because it was originally a house, it still feels like a house with all the furniture, high windows, and of course the European paintings, home pieces, and sculptures Frick collected. Not only this, but The Frick Collection offers free sketching materials so you can sketch in the Garden Court. Also, I attended a free piano concert and enjoyed complimentary snacks. An experience that goes beyond just a museum visit.
  • Great little art collection. You should be able to view everything in 2 hours, more if you're looking very thoroughly. You can get the handset for free that provides more information in the art pieces. Very neat insight into how Frock lived based in his taste of art. Wednesdays at 2pm till close at 6pm is pay what you wish. No pictures allowed inside except the courtyard.
  • This is an outstanding museum with outstanding architecture and very outstanding artworks. Price of admission is about $22 for adults. We went on a Friday early afternoon and the museum was not crowded. You can get a self-guided audio tour machine for free and I would recommend that if you have the time. The collection spans across a number of rooms in this Mansion which was converted to an art museum. In addition upon entry, there is an auditorium where they play a short 10-minute movie about the creator of the museum and the building as well as the artwork. Took about 1 hour to walk at a slow pace to see all of the paintings and some of the sculptures. High quality attraction very high quality paintings and sculptures. Very highly recommended if you like art, appreciate architecture, and have some time in this area. Very highly recommended!
