The Frick Museum in New York has long been one our favorites so it was really interesting to see the house he lived in in Pittsburgh. Do not go expecting any similarities to the New York site. The house and furnishings are heavily Victorian with an abundance of red. The docent who led the tour was very knowledgable about the... More

My husband and I toured the Frick Museum in New York and wanted to see the Clayton house where the Fricks lived, prior to New York. The guide was outstanding and knowledgeable; she made the tour very interesting. The Victorian house is well-maintained and has original furnishings. We also enjoyed the car and carriage museum.

Enjoyed the tour of the house very much - lots of history - and most of the rooms have the original furnishings and decor. The guides are very well informed.

I love history and and Frick had quite an interesting life. They had a series on the history channel I had followed and it followed him and Carganies life so it made all the more enjoyable knowing some of his history ahead of time. It was a interesting way to spend a couple of hours. If you read up on... More

Great exhibit with an opportunity to tour the grounds. The greenhouse was very interesting and the gift shop loads of fun. We will return to see the house and eat at the café.

Went to the Killer Heels exhibit with my cousins - we all said Wow to the shoes on exhibit! There were a lot of unusual and interesting shoes and boots at the show. We enjoyed looking at the different showcases. We also took a quick tour of the cars which was great too. The gift shop was nice but we... More

I attended a tour of the Claymont House with Linda, and it was one of the best tours I have ever participated in. For only $14, we got an extensive tour of the first two floors of Claymont in addition to an abundance of facts about the Frick family and a history lesson about the aristocratic families of America at...

The house visit and tour is the highlight of the Frick Historical Center. The cafe is wonderful and the food great and is a must as a place to eat if you go to the Frick. The visitor center is pleasant with a nice shop. The art collection is minimal.
