The tour to Clayton house is lovely. We had tea at the Frick's Cafe after our tour, highly recommended! The cafe is small but very lovely atmosphere and great food. We've been to the Art Museum for various great shows, it is free to the public. There is a small green house and a nice book store/gift shop.

This is a lovely place to spend a few hours on a pleasant summer's day. We opted to take the tour of the mansion, which is incredible. The guide provided lots of detail and gave time for questions in each room. The house is not just history, it is an artistic achievement in every detail. After the tour we went... More

The Frick Mansion , car museum and art gallery are a great way to experience history. We return at least twice a year. The cafe is a wonderful place to have a meal. We often just go to the estate to walk the grounds and eat lunch

Recently re-visited the Frick Center. Had out-of-town guests who were most interested in the Frick family home. We're longtime residents with still a bit of baggage from HC Frick's Pinkerton legacy and resentment of the fact that the BIG money/art/house went to NYC rather than staying locally. That grouse being aired, the carriage/car museum is a treasure on its own.... More

The "Killer Heels" exhibition at the Frick Art Museum was fantastic! The curators did an outstanding job displaying hundreds of shoes and the information pertaining to the shoes. As always, the Frick gives patrons an opportunity to glimpse many cultural styles and periods in time.

We were visiting during the summer, and it was a lovely setting. We enjoy old historic houses and the story of its owners... and this was no exception with the Frick house. I am not a car person, but the Car Museum was really great and informative and not overwhelming. I think that it was free. Check the website, we... More

Saw an interesting visiting exhibit on high heels. Walked around the grounds. Didn't go to house part of museum but am thinking I should of. Small book store and cafe available. Plenty of off street parking.

My daughter loves high heels so we were excited to go to the Killer Heel exhibit. It was interesting and almost bordered on bizarre at times. (Remember folks, it's art not shoes that are worn).. It was an interesting array of shoes from elegant to wild and crazy. A fee is charged and it takes about an hour to see... More

Very nice tour of the Clayton. The Car Museum was fantastic. The Art Museum was alright but I'm not into the art that was displayed while we were there. Really did not see the "Killer Heals" exhibit because there were a bunch of people there looking at it and it was a very small exhibit that did not allow the... More

The special exhibit "Killer Heels" exhibit (fee charged) was OK, not great and not really worth the price of admission. The few rooms at the entrance with a number of art pieces (including a portrait by Gainsborough) are free to see. Also free is the car museum with extensive collect of cars and carriages, the greenhouse, and the grounds of... More
