What a way to start the holiday season. Try to schedule your tour around 5:00 p.m. so that you can enjoy the lights when it gets darker. The new visitor center was well worth a look. Don't forget to go to the Frick Art Museum and Car Museum...always an added bonus. Late lunch in the café (reservations highly recommended) was... More

Very cold day when we were there.The house was warm inside. A trip back to the guilded age. Lightly decorated for Christmas. House was very dark inside due to the lighting and the decor. Very knowledgeable docents.

We stopped on Dec. 30. The home tour required reservations. They were kind of stuffy staff. I have been to many historic homes. I would call this one over rated. Museum is nice and free.

My review only half counts, as I did not visit the Frick home, just the museum and greenhouse. There is a fee to tour the house and didn't book ahead or feel that it was potentially worth the money, but I certainly could be wrong. The museum was fine, small and had some interesting art, just depends on your taste... More

We loved the museum, principally because of the current exhibit, which was Charles Courtney Curran. His paintings and the history and stories behind them were fascinating and captivating. We happen to really enjoy his style and we spent a few hours in the several galleries which housed the exhibit. The remainder of the museum was also superb. The admission was... More

I really enjoyed this museum and tour of the mansion. The museum while small, had a special exhibit of American Impressionist Charles Curran which was spectacular. The guided house tour was very informative and our guide was excellent.

Beautiful small museum. You can visit the house only if you pre-book your time. Took a cab from our hotel, easy enough, BUT when we tried to get a cab back, we waited over an hour and the cab never came to pck us up. Had to walk to a bus stop and bus it back. Very annoying for seniors....

This house embodies the opposite of Pittsburgh stereotypes. The classic grandeur of the house, coupled with the lovely open space of the grounds have no business being associated with an industrial city full of engineering college students. Our tour guide, Bunny, was incredibly knowledgeable about the house and family, and seemed to really love her job. Besides the house, the... More

The five star rating is for the house, not the art museum. The art museum portion gets two stars. We went on a house tour, walked around the grounds and visited the art museum. The house was very interesting and our docent knowledgeable. You visit the first and second floors of the home and the tour lasts about an hour.... More
