Fabulous collection of paintings, sculpture, furniture in a home, easy to view, visit on Sunday between 11 and 1 when entry fee is by donation only. Children under ten are not permitted, even babies in strollers. Only con - most attendants were not very helpful or welcoming.

We had just come from a disappointing visit to the Whitney and were transported into a world of times gone by in the beautiful former Frick Mansion with its amazing collection of art ranging from Titian to Monet.

Great and interesting museum. This is a small museum compared to the MET or the MOMA in NYC, but I prefered it because there were not many people, the map of the museum is clear, the audio guides comments are very interesting as well. Possibility to leave your bag at the entrance, which is very apreciable.

I love this spot, so many paintings in this home - you really get a feel for luxury old-world Manhattan. Absolutely adore this collection.

The Frick is a never-miss for me. The home of financier Frick, who had an incredible collector's eye, the Frick has an amazing breadth of work for such a small museum. I mean, when you have enough Turners, Constables, El Grecos, HOlbeins, Sargents that you can hand two of your three Vermeers in the hallway, you know you have a... More

Beautiful home atmosphere - gorgeous collection. The art there is mostly landscapes and portraits of beautiful women.

The Frick collection was the cultural highlight of our visit to NYC. Every room, every corridor, every alcove contained something that just took one's breath away. Everything was just so beautifully presented in perfect light as well. The highlight of the visit was viewing the portraits of Sir Thomas More and Thomas Cromwell and the manner in which these paintings... More

I adored the Frick Collection. Housed on fifth ave in his former home, the private collection of Henry Frick is the perfect escape from the larger galleries and museums. Try to time your visit with one of the free talks provided - I thoroughly enjoyed this, the museum staff are very knowledgeable. The audio guide is also excellent. This is... More

This is the must-visit museum only after you have conquered the Met, MOMA, and the American Museum of Natural History. Compared to the other big 3 museums this one is much smaller, having been the former residence of Mr. Frick. It is definitely much less overwhelming (can be comfortably visited in about an hour and a half), and is relatively... More

I almost overlooked The Frick. We had so many other things to do that fitting it in a trip to The Frick seemed impossible. But boy am I glad we did. Between the elegant mansion that houses this amazing collection and the phenomenal Gainsboroughs, Turners, Rembrants, Vermeers, and even a Manet, a Monet, and a Degas themselves, this experience is...
