We were able to use our Denver Art Museum membership for entrance into the Frick New York. We were invited to take an audio tour of the collection which exists all on the first floor of this large building. The paintings and sculpture and furniture are a collected history of a period of time. Numbers next to some items reveals... More

i never miss a visit to the Frick when in NYC. It feels cozy and luxurious, and the collection is varied, although all pre-modern. Nothing compares to sitting in the courtyard, or being so close to a Vermeer, El Greco, and amazing statues. This museum can be experienced in only an hour and a half, so it is a luxurious... More

From Hans Memling to Rembrandt and Vermeer to Turner and Degas, this is a greatest hits collection housed in one of the most spectacular mansions in Manhattan. The perfect two hours of art history.

One of the best art collections I have ever seen in a unique setting - like visiting the house of the rich friend we all wish we had but of course don't. Collection includes Rembrandt, Goya, Turnball, El Greco, Constable. Mostly portraits and landscapes but many are recognizable from art books and high school art classes. Make sure you pick... More

Wonderful art collection in a 5th Ave mansion. A unique, wonderful museum to visit. See how the less than 1% lived -- wonderful collection of furnishings, paintings (including 3 by Vermeer) and some sculpture.

This is one of the world's great art collections, housed in an astonishing mansion which covers an entire block on 5th Avenue. Renoir, Rembrandt, Boucher, Fragonard, Turner - Henry Clay Frick collected them all, and arrayed them through the impressive public rooms of his amazing house. Easily the best small museum in NYC.

The collection was put together with sole idea of collecting beautiful things. I go to the Frick to see the collection and the building and to take a break from the hurly burly of the city. I also buy art cards. What's not to like about that?

It is a small museum with an excellent private collection. You can do it in about an hour and a half and withing walking distance of Madison Avenue and Central Park.

The Frick is my favorite NYC museum. It allows a peaceful, contemplative experience of art. In terms of its collection, it can't compete with MOMA or the Met, but it offers an experience that they can't match.
