Unbelievable how many big names they have on display. Truly an unforgettable experience. Costs a fair bit but is definitely worth dipping into your pocket for

“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

A lovely museum. Went with a friend who is a member, as we were able to bypass line to see "The Goldfinch", which was part of a Dutch masters exhibit. The permanent collection is beautiful. Thanks Mr. Frick for being a robber baron and collecting all that nice swag to display in such a grand home!

“Spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Great art in a unique and wonderful setting. I can't wait to return. I liked the audio tour, and I focused most on the entries for the rooms.

“My Favorite Gallery in the Whole World”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

The Frick is the best. It has a wonderful ambiance and you just feel better after a visit. I try to go every time I go to New York. The paintings are pleasing and the gallery feels like you have been invited to walk through Mr Frick's home rather than a gallery. Everything is beautiful and calming with pleasant and personal paintings all around you. No disturbing or challenging art, just honest to goodness beauty. I love it.
