A fabulous collection of old master paintings set in a exceptionally beautiful 5th Avenue Town House overlooking Central Park. A totally different experience to the likes of MOMA.

It was amazing to see the original collection in the original home setting. It's like Isabella Gardner Museum in Boston, but the original owner did a greater setting for the collection. Everything is great about this museum: works of art, furniture, architecture. Would like to visit it again!

A clean,well maintened,easy access house art gallery that not only gives you an idea of how the rich lived in th early 1900's in NYC but also a rare chance to view a collectors life in paintings and sculptures.Being Henry Clay Fricks mansion,this museum puts all his treasures up front in your face.No cords or glass casings to stop you...

Loved the diverse collection, wished they had more benches to allow contemplation of the work I am an art teacher, and find it helpful to be able to relax and view art at a slow pace, not like going through a grocery store line love the collection, I will go back

First class collection of top painters work set in a unique way. Really nice to see art in a 'normal' environment on the walls of a house (OK mansion) rather than normal sterile gallery.

The Frick Collection contains some of the very best works by European artists in the period from the middle ages up to the last century. Henry Clay Frick had the taste and discernment accompanied by the money to buy the best. Many of the paintings and sculptures in the collection are recognisable because they are in textbooks on their subjects.... More

With all the massive museums sprinkled through out NYC, the Frick is a smaller, quieter, more accessible art experience. Their collection is iconic and every time I visit this incredible museum my breath is taken away. One of my favorite paintings, Picasso's Garçon à la pipe hung on the walls here for a long time, until it circulated back to... More
