A must for all art lovers, a lovely house for one, and one mans art collection inside, beautiful. There are always special exhibitions here as far as I can tell.

I cannot say what was more impressive, the art or the mansion itself. From the outside the mansion seems so out of place with all of the high rises surrounding it; but when you enter the building the two story structure packs a big punch. I cannot imagine living in such grandeur; but obviously people did. The artwork is awe... More

Amazing stuff!!!! Definitely need to go here. Every time I´m in New York I pay them a visit. It´s a magical place to transport you the Frick´s era. Love their art collection and how they preserve it. During spring time they have such amazing flowers in their gardens, specially in early spring the tulips looks great! Pay What You Wsh... More

This intimate and very personal collection of collected art and antiques rivals most museums for its sheer ease of visiting, the interesting layout and the beautiful historic home that it is housed in. The Met and the Moma overwhelm, where this place sucks you in and makes you feel as if you were an invited guest to a private home.

Love the Frick--for both what is there --and the house it is in. It gives one the feeling of stepping back in time. Going there on my next trip.

This is an amazing museum. The collection staggered and it's displayed in rooms of what was the Frick home - original decor intact. I love that the museum isn't big enough to overwhelm or wear me out.

It is a grand structure that you can imagine living in if you were living at that time and very wealthy! Vey pleasant to stroll around the rooms. Manageable size for an outing in the city.

This beautiful museum tucked away on 71st street and 5th Avenue is the former home of industrialist Henry Clay Frick. Much of the home still has the original furnishings from when the Frick family lived there. At this museum, prepare to be overwhelmed. You will see fabulous Vermeer, Rembrant, Turner, Hobbema, Hals and many, many other famous artists. Additionally, there... More

My mother in law mentioned about Frick collection to me and suggested us to go for a visit. I was skeptical about it as it is not something on a top 10 must visit NYC place so I was concerned it might disappoint me. I was WRONG, the building, the painting of old masters, the furniture, and the information just... More

This is in the former home of Henry Clay Frick and has one of the finest private art collections in the world.
