I am more of a modernist, so the collection was Nice, but the true masterpiece is the House (Mansion). One family/the heart of Manhattan/images of the furniture that must've filled each room/the heating bill? Wish we could see the upstairs.

This museum is centrally located next to Central Park along Museum mile. It was already on our list of sites to see but it surpassed our expectations. The building and collection is not so large that you get tired as you do in the major museums. It is kept in excellent order and in a home setting. The paintings are... More

This is one of the greatest collections an art lover can wish for. Every work is a whole experience. The house itself is also beautiful.

Great find - enabled us to escape the heat of Central Park and enjoy great paintings etc. Enjoyed the hand held commentary which enabled you to log into the background history of paintings and artefacts on display. Particularly liked Constable painting of Salisbury Cathedral as close to home in UK.

Was my first visit to the Frick Collection. Stately mansion whose architecture is as much a draw as the art inside. A more intimate setting than a grand museum with much to see. Interesting to imagine what life was like for those who resided in this grand setting.

This is a lovely, small museum that was the former home of the art collector. It is just beautiful. Every time we entered a new room, we were surprised about the number of European artists that were represented. Seeing the 3 Vermeers alone is worth the trip. We spent a few hours here, and I could have spent an entire... More

We went early and waited for the Frick to open as we were flying home later that day. Our time in NYC had passed quickly but, having read about how worthwhile the visit would be, we were determined to see it and we were not disappointed. The Frick Collection is one of the finest gatherings of European paintings in the... More

Located in what was a private house this places the art in an original setting that is very atmospheric.
