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.

If you want to see a local mansion preserved to the gilded age of the roaring 20s, this is beautiful! Pretty greenhouse too. Nice building for an afternoon tea or nice lunch. Separate building with a gift shop. Good art museum too. Check their schedule for special exhibits.

Wonderful art gallery and museum - a must see in Pittsburgh. We booked a tour of the house and it was just my friend and I so was very personal. The house is amazing and full of luxuries for its time. The gallery had an impressionist exhibition including Monet - very special. Lunch in the cafe was lovely - medium... More

We enjoyed wandering through the gardens and the museum. We did not check ahead of time so we could not view the house. You must make a reservation for that. The special art exhibit was wonderful and fit the pittsburgh area. The staff were very nice. Next time we will plan for a visit of the home. Also we had... More

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
