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

I visited the museum and home of Henry Frick today. As a resident of tis region it was something I had not yet done. The museum had just received works from Curran. These were a treat to see. The rest of the museum was very pleasant $ quit nice. We walked to the shop and got tickets to get the... More

The art museum and grounds are free, and very good, but the hour-long guided tour of Frick's mansion, Clayton is well worth the$12. 90% original, containing amazing woodwork, fabrics, lighting and artifacts. Stunning features and well-preserved family home. A bit removed from other city attractions, but history/art/architecture fans should not miss it!

Clayton Hall has only 24 rooms but the interior uses very scare and expensive materials for the time...like aluminum on the ceilings (more expensive then than gold) Delightful gardens...well labeled. Carriage House; and cafe and art museum with works collected by Frick's daughter. Expert guides. Friendly staff. Lots of parking in a high end residential area.

Great for all the occasions - Wonderful little museum with nice exhibitions. Old cars museum is definitely worth visiting. Both places are free :) To visit a mansion there is small price. Very nice relaxed atmosphere in general and don't miss the cafe! I love their high tea time! Quite a gem in Pittsburgh!

Overshadowed by the better-known Frick Museum in NYC, the art and historical center is well worth a visit, mostly for what it conveys of the life a of a tycoon and his daughter, Helen, who was a collector and philanthropist who deserves to better known. The 1970 museum is a fine late example of Beaux Arts architecture. The permanent collection... More
