Many of the Frick family's treasures are still here in their original condition. It's a great place to visit when it's decorated for Christmas.
Gives a wonderful glimpse of how the Fricks lived. Comfortable but not ostentatious. Docents are very knowledgeable and helpful. Also can get lunch on the grounds at Cafe at the Frick. Fun summer outdoor dining, or indoors, year round.
Sign up for a tour at the gift shop/former play house and you will get to see how robber barons lived. It is very interesting but only for 12 and up. Grounds have excellent free car and carriage museum, cafe, and art museum. Very beautiful.
Widely interesting and worthwhile. (Men on an earlier tour marveled at the woodwork in the family mansion, Clayton, and children were fascinated by the 19th Century toys and a player-piano type orchestra in a huge box on the front porch.) House tours daily except Monday and holidays, $6-$12. Everything else is free. John Phillips Sousa's band entertained here on at... More

Just twenty minutes east of Pittsburgh, this is a wonderful mansion and museum. The house itself is not ostentatious, but it was/is beautifully appointed. It isn't huge. It could be very livable today if modernized. Nice to see how the other one half of one percent live!
We toured the Clayton house on the Pittsburgh Frick Museum grounds. I lured my husband there with the promise of the antique car and carriage collection, since he does not always like historic home tours. However, in this case, he loved it. Helen Clay Frick lived in the house after inheriting it from her steel magnate father. Since she never... More
My 12 year old son and I had a few hours to kill in Point Breeze so we decided to stop by the Clayton to explore the art collection and car and carriage museum, both of which are free! We have been to the mansion several times (love it!), but had never seen Helen Clay Frick's art collection. One word:... More
