“A classic museum, not to be missed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

A classic museum, not to be missed. More intimate than other museums, good on weekends when the larger museums are crowded.

First time visit to the frick and was awed by the home as well as the collection. I can't believe I had not visited before. This is definitely a MUST SEE place to go in NYC.

“Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

If you visit New York and have time to spare, this is a must visit. The house itself is beautiful with lots of history behind it. The artwork is well organized and easy to follow. If you visit on Sunday from 11:00 to 13:00, you pay what you wish. A bargain if you ask me. There is no food vending on site, so eat before or after the visit. Not really a place for small children, so this would be better suited for 10 and over. Enjoy....

“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

It's a fantastic place to see some great art including Constable, Gainsborough and Titian. Only take 90 minutes and during 11-1 on Sunday you pay what you want.
