Sunday is name your price day, but please do not take advantage of it by paying $1. This is an excellent collection, and deserves 1-2 hours if you like the Masters.

Art collection not to be missed. Impressive and significant. Pay what you wish from 11a -1p on Sunday mornings. A NYC bargain! Stunning home and contents that are significant artistically and historically. Be sure to get the audio tour. Highly recommend. Allow 2 hrs.

Brilliant, the furniture and the painting are worth while going to see we did a few museums and thought this one was one of the best.

The Frick is the one museum you must go to in New York. It is a more expensive entry free but is worth it. There is so much to see at the Frick. And some amazing artwork such as the Constables and the Vermeer's.

What you can do when you have a lot of money. No evidence of Frick's taste, just the best example of what money could buy when he was actively buying and have the best dealers working for you. Amazing collection and the house is interesting on its on. One of NY's must-see destinations.

A fabulous collection of old master paintings set in a exceptionally beautiful 5th Avenue Town House overlooking Central Park. A totally different experience to the likes of MOMA.

It was amazing to see the original collection in the original home setting. It's like Isabella Gardner Museum in Boston, but the original owner did a greater setting for the collection. Everything is great about this museum: works of art, furniture, architecture. Would like to visit it again!

A clean,well maintened,easy access house art gallery that not only gives you an idea of how the rich lived in th early 1900's in NYC but also a rare chance to view a collectors life in paintings and sculptures.Being Henry Clay Fricks mansion,this museum puts all his treasures up front in your face.No cords or glass casings to stop you...

Loved the diverse collection, wished they had more benches to allow contemplation of the work I am an art teacher, and find it helpful to be able to relax and view art at a slow pace, not like going through a grocery store line love the collection, I will go back
