The Vermeers, the Holbeins, the Boucher room, the very tall Renoir of a woman with two young daughters, the many other fine paintings...and the wood floors. This museum is just bite-sized, comfortably viewed in just a few hours.

Perfect sanctuary with incredible collection of work. Do not miss it. One of the most significant Rembrandt self-portraits in existence.

New York has some world famous museums, with large and incredible collections. The Frick is not one of those. It is a mansion housing the collection of Mr. Frick, who bequeathed it to establish a public gallery; he left an endowment so additional works of art could be added. None of the collection is allowed to leave the building, so... More

We had a rainy day in NYC and decided to visit the Frick where we had never been. It's wonderfully doable in as long a time as you wish to spend there. Henry Clay Frick collected various artists such as Ver Meer, Rembrandt, Whistler, Monet, Titian, Botticelli, Hals, Van Dyke, Holbein and Turner to name just a few and displayed... More

Vermeer, Rembrandt, French inlaid tables, garden court, splendid woodwork, chandeliers, oriental carpets--this is how the Bill Gateses of a century ago would have lived, collecting art and furniture of the highest quality, rivaling royal collections in some cases. Sunday mornings there is a line, since payment is as one wishes. It's one of my favorite places in the city, large... More

I had never been to the Frick museum which I am sad to admit. I finally went this weekend and it was such a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon. We went on Sunday at 11 which is when the museum is a pay what you wish rate for two hours. We did have to wait a bit outside... More

No visit to New York is complete without a visit to the Frick. As I said in an earlier review, it's one of the best smaller art museums in the world, located in a building that displays the art to excellent advantage. The permanent collection gives a wonderful overview of western art from the late Middle Ages to the nineteenth... More

If you prefer smaller museums (like me) this is an excellent choice. Located directly across from Central Park on 5th Avenue, this is an excellent option for seeing beautiful works of art but in a smaller more intimate setting. Highly recommend as the collection is beautiful!

The period of art and how it is displayed is not really my cup of tea. They do a good job of engaging children in art as evidenced by the many groups of eager students. Just didn't think the overall effect is relevant to today. The house is lovely, but looks a little unloved.

The building alone is worth the price of admission. The collection is priceless.The history of the building and it's occupants is a trip back in time to see the beauty that unlimited resources created.
