This little museum should have more visitors Experience the culture and refinement of the Gilded Age at the Frick Art & Historical Center, located on beautifully landscaped gardens in Pittsburgh's East End. The museum and its multiple collections are the legacy of Helen Clay Frick, daughter of Henry Clay Frick, one of America's greatest industrialists and art collectors. Here, one... More

I absolutely love visiting. As a History buff, I simply cannot get enough of feeling a step back in time. Most people from Pittsburgh simply "drive by". I highly suggest a visit you won't be disappointed.

Through the years I have frequented The Frick Art Museum and have never been disappointed with the exhibitions presented. From Fabrege, Civil War Art, through to the Impressionist to Modernist Early Photography exhibit to name a few, I thoroughly enjoy visiting the Center.

This site is very accessible; there is little traffic and easy parking. There is no cost for parking; the museum is on a donation basis. The house tour costs a fee, but you can enjoy the grounds without doing the house tour. The Frick Cafe has exellent food in a very elegant but comfortable setting.

Loved visiting the house and hearing the story of the family and the great things they did for Pittsburgh. Art museum was OK, but thought collection was small. Also, $10 fee to see small collection from the Wales Museum seemed a little steep to me. Overall enjoyed our visit

We went to the Frick twice. Once on Friday night where from 5-9 they have it open to see the art and have a glass of wine, and a second time when we took the Clayton tour on Tues at 10 am. The art was nice (both the visiting and the permanent collection). We walked the grounds after. We liked... More

This is an incredible place to learn about the history of Pittsburgh and its steel and business industry. As someone from the South, this is a completely different side of the working class than what we have down there. It was very interesting to see how they lived and worked!

I took a cab to get to this site. The day I visited which was a Tuesday was museum day and so all attractions at this site were free. I joined a group to tour "Clayton" the Frick family mansion. Wow..what a beauty. Absolutely original home on the 2 floors were were able to see. Fabulous woodwork everywhere and ceilings... More

I toured the house and the docent was knowledgeable and informative. It's was nice to get to know the previous residents who made Pittsburgh what it is today. You can walk around the grounds to your hearts content and there is a lovely cafe on the grounds.

Docent Ann very knowlegable. Beautiful home and interesting facts. The orchestrant is an amazing musical "contraption". Cafe for lunch, though, is highly overrated. Don't bother eating there.
