Our daughter used to live in a apartment across the street from the Frick, but this was the first time we visited it, when we returned to Pittsburgh for graduation. The car museum was closed for renovation, which was disappointing, however, the museum, greenhouse and grounds were open and free. The house tour costs $12 per person.

I always would pass this place and one day I just went to visit it. From the art museum to Clayton it self. You step back in time it's beautiful.

I've always loved the Frick. It's one of the best kept secrets and you won't be disappointed. It is many things, a beautiful museum with excellent temporary exhibitions, it has a brand new visitor center, and it has a very interesting mansion (the Frick's original mansion before building their NYC mansion - also a museum) to tour. They also have... More

I love history and historic house. This house is amazing. The only thing I disliked was that I didn't feel free to ask questions outside of what the docent's had planned. Also no opportunity to linger in places that interested me. The grounds and cafe where appealing, as well as the art musuem.

Helen Clay Frick gave us this. It should not be missed. There are some early Flemish bronzes and a Titian or two.

The Frick museum is a Pittsburgh Gem. They have wonderful exhibits and the mood is just perfect. Easy parking. Smaller crowds. A perfect place to take a date or friends to see some amazing collections of art.

What a way to start the holiday season. Try to schedule your tour around 5:00 p.m. so that you can enjoy the lights when it gets darker. The new visitor center was well worth a look. Don't forget to go to the Frick Art Museum and Car Museum...always an added bonus. Late lunch in the café (reservations highly recommended) was... More

Very cold day when we were there.The house was warm inside. A trip back to the guilded age. Lightly decorated for Christmas. House was very dark inside due to the lighting and the decor. Very knowledgeable docents.

We stopped on Dec. 30. The home tour required reservations. They were kind of stuffy staff. I have been to many historic homes. I would call this one over rated. Museum is nice and free.
