We were able to visit on a community day with free entry. Usually there is a fee to tour the mansion. The guys in our group were especially interested in the carriage house and the display of old buggies, carriages, and vintage automobiles. The mansion tours were interesting with docents available to answer questions. Truly an illustration of a time... More

Located in the Point Breeze section of Pittsburgh, the "Frick" is a must see. Henry Clay Frick was an industrialist and art collector. The home is a nineteenth century residence. Besides the residence, there is a museum, the Greenhouse, a Car and Carriage Museum a gift store and a cafe'.

We visited the Frick Art museum to join a tour of the Clayton House and later view the art collection. The Clayton House has a beautiful collection of period furniture and an incredible architecture and interior design. The art museum and carriage house are terrific.

I have absolutely loved this place over the years, and visit a couple of times a year. Each time it has been decorated differently....so intrigued with this historical time period! My only negative comment is that they built some fancy shmancy visitor center, causing the place to look more corporate and artificial. This killed the authenticity that the natural grounds... More

Interesting visit to see how the people of that era lived. Many artifacts have been preserved to experience. The only thing I was disappointed in was the only recognition of the Holiday was a tree decorated on the porch. It seems strange that was the only decoration .

This gorgeous mansion has been perfectly preserved. The tour through two floors of the main house is a must-do activity for anyone who loves turn-of-the-century style and culture. At Christmas the mansion is decorated just as it would have been in the 1890s and it is a sight to see! The grounds are beautiful. Visit the attached museum and soon... More

The Frick has both a house that decorates according to the era and the holidays and a museum of incredible old cars. It also has a lovely cafe for brunch and high tea.

My adult son and I enjoy visiting art museums together. He recently moved to the Pittsburgh area so we looked for a place to see on a weekend visit. This was a gem! I had been to Frick's home in NYC and was overwhelmed by his collection there. This doesn't have nearly as many pictures and most of what we... More

At first I thought that this place may be to uppity for my family to visit, we are average folks. Not the case. The Frick is so welcoming and gave us a chance to look into the life of the wealthy history of Pittsburgh. The layout was family friendly and the staff was so nice and welcoming. The artwork was...

The complex includes the restored Frick mansion known as Clayton, The Frick Art Museum, The Car and Carriage Museum, the Greenhouse, and The Café. There is no charge to walk around the grounds and visit all the buildings except the Clayton. The Café looked pretty nice, but we did not go into it. We arrived in the area late in... More
