Well worth the trip if you like art. Excellent and informative tour of the mansion ($12). The gardens are lovely; recommend visiting when weather is warm. Museum (free) is small but worthwhile. Nice café which is a little pricey.

Held my daughter's bridal shower on Aug. 1st (Under the Awning) part of the Cafe at the Frick. It was fabulous. Great food, terrific service, lovely table setting. All 17 guests loved it. Also ate at the Cafe several times before and the food is wonderful; fresly made and the desserts are "out of this world".

Very nice afternoon spent on these beautiful grounds. Museum is quaint with lovely artwork. Frick House is filled with beautiful furniture and tons of history. Very enjoyable.

Not the most famous attraction in Pittsburgh but definitely worth the visit. The Art Museum was not vast, but it has many famous paintings, sculptures, tapestries and antiques that is worth the visit. The Greenhouse and the Park is worth the stroll. Remember to look for the 100 year old Jade Plant in the Greenhouse. We did not have time... More

The grounds and house are amazing and beautiful. The docent was very knowledgeable and informative.The decor, art, and "modern conveniences" were very interesting.

This is a very elegant, old building in the Squirrel Hill area of Pittsburgh. There is a charming cafe, beautiful grounds and a significant art collection to be explored. There are two free galleries, though you will have to pay for special exhibitions. Still, worth a visit.

There are two permanent art galleries with free admission, while the temporary exhibit is $10 per person. The free galleries are small, so you will not need much time to view them.

House is what I'd call a Queen Anne, but it has other overtones. Wonderful example of that 'preserved in time' feel which is often much more interesting than 'historic' displays. You get the feel of the family and especially the daughter who left it in trust. Sadly (for me) the carriage house / car display was undergoing a renovation. The... More

For history buffs, you will not be disappointed. The house has all the original furniture and paintings. The grounds are gorgeous and have an amazing cafe and giftshop. The tour guides are very knowledgable and friendly. Mr Frick had a very complex and interesting life.
