The Frick seems to be rated at or near the #1 attraction in New York City. I cannot disagree. The building itself is almost worth the price of admission. After tolerating the crowds at so many other NYC attractions, do yourself a favor and languish at The Frick.

Not everyone knows about this gem of a museum, but it is worth a visit. It is not a large museum so it will not take you very long, but it is a true gem in the heart of Manhattan.

This is a great little gem in Manhattan for someone who would like to see world-class art but without the crowds. I loved the Vermeers at this museum and the collection overall is vast and fascinating. This place was near our hotel (The Carlyle) and it was really nice to be able to enjoy the art without being rushed. This... More

A wonderful private art collection in a lovely old mansion. The price, I felt, was a bit steep at $20 pp. this is a collection that is not overwhelming but varied with works by Rembrandt, VerMeer, Turner, Monet to name a few. Easily done in1-2 hours. Central Park is right there. So a great time to stroll the park as... More

After hearing about 'The Frick' for years, I was pleased to visit on a recent trip to NYC. Beautiful, restored mansion abutting Central Park filled with art and home furnishings/decor of the family. Impressive audio guide was a real plus. Expansive collection. If you're a lover of classical art and homes of some of our nation's wealthiest, you'll love this... More

Wow, this was such a nice surprise, to find a mansion turned museum mid-Manhattan. I have never seen so many Dutch Masters paintings. There was a glorious finding in every nook and cranny. Make sure you give yourself a couple of hours to enjoy the mansion and it's collection.

Lived the beautiful old Madison left to the city. The late Mr Frik left his beautiful home complete with beautiful and so mant art work. Many of the masters and the enclosed garden lovely. Admission was $20 each but worth it if you like art

Set in the stunning family home of the industrialist Henry Clay Frick this museum houses his personal art and artefact collections. Well hung and presented the visitor feels like entering a private space. The mix of famous artists is a great pleasure to visit and enjoy. The entry charge also includes an audio guide which is a must.
