It is a nice place to stop and have a picnic lunch before touring the Frick house....good parking, very helpful docents rest rooms, water fountain. Quiet and serene. We were there for a specific exhibit but enjoyed the entire experience. The... More

We did not have time to tour the Frick home, but the museums and grounds were simply wonderful. We also enjoyed a delightful lunch outdoors at the cafe. Highly recommend.

This is an interesting tour about the coke mining of PA. You tour two levels of the Frick house which is quite interesting.

Our family loves sightseeing so this center caught my eye because we have been to the Frick in Manhattan and, unlike the NY experience, here the museum and parking are free. Note that the collection is much smaller, but has fine gems to appreciate. We enjoyed the site's multiple attractions. First, we parked and visited the completely free museum. Favorites... More

I highly recommend coming here if you are into the Victorian and gilded age as well as art. You will be in awe at the family's property and way of life. The tour guide was great, you should definitely take the tour! The automobile and playhouse were down for renovation and we didn't have time to eat at the cafe... More

This Frick art collection is not as extensive as the one in NY, but is a nice niche collection. There is also the Frick house to your, grounds and a cafe. This is an interesting place to spend a little time. If you want to tour the house, you will need to call for reservations.

My friends and I toured the Clayton House and had lunch in the Frick Cafe. I was impressed with the mansion tour and how knowledgeable the tour guide was with the Frick family and the history of that period. The history of one of the influential families of that time, and how they helped to make Pittsburgh the steel center... More

Enjoyed our tour of Clayton, Henry Clay Frick’s home. The Art Museum is relatively small, but nicely done. The Car & Carriage Museum was closed for renovation. The new Orientation Center looked like a Frank Lloyd Wright design, fitting very well into the setting. Most impressive was the Café, which can’t be beat for a romantic and delicious lunch.

My husband and I visited the art museum and car & carriage museum before dinner nearby. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere, and opportunity to linger over pieces we particularly liked. The grounds are beautiful, too!

I found myself pretty bored with the art collection, but I guess Mrs. Frick loved it. The grounds are pretty, there was a small café that was very busy. Didn't tour the house, wish I had.
