Probably one of my favorite art museums I've ever been to. The collection is diverse and displayed within a beautiful home. I would definitely recommend visiting this treasure.

This is a very special small museum, a must for anyone visiting NYC who hasn't been there. Also check the special exhibits, I was bummed to have missed The Girl with the Pearl Earring when it was there visiting.

This is not to be missed! You get so much for you money - the art and furniture is the highlight but the property itself is also a work of art. We had the best time here. It was peaceful and so beautiful there. A very unique experience. Don't miss it!

The museum is actually housed within a turn of the century mansion right in NYC. The self guided audio tour is well done and the pieces on display are as amazing as the home itself. Don't miss this one!

The collection is small but impeccable; Mr. Frick had amazing taste. There are so many instantly recognizable pieces in this collection, especially English and Dutch masters. It's small enough that one can see the whole collection in a single view, which makes it quite accessible to older children. They don't allow anyone under 10 in.

The Frick Collection is housed In a beautiful building with a wonderful central courtyard. We went on a Sunday where entry is technically free although they do request a donation instead of the usual $20 charge. There is a wonderful variety of art with an excellent audio guide provided for free. The beauty of this museum is that it is... More

Great collection in beautiful surroundings. Far more manageable in size than many other places with this quality of work.

In the center of Manhattan, on the east side lies this small jem with paintings of Degas, Ranuar and other masters. It is a private home converted into a museum. Also includes a a clock collection.
