Small collection, but still interesting. It's also free. It's close to the Carengie. Carnegie is open later, so go here first. Good car museum on same grounds too.

Not everything was open when we were there. The mansion was closed and the cafe was closed. The children's playhouse houses the offices (not open to public) which is unfortunate because this would have been something to see (it even had a bowling alley for the kids). It is a nice walk through the 5.5 acre of lawn and gardens but there wasn't much blooming in March (I was expecting more color). What was open was the Helen Frick art museum that houses her personal art collection, some furniture, and her jewelry. Some of the jewelry was interesting to look at but the art just wasn't my type so I had little interest in seeing it (apparently she wasn't into contemporary art which is my favorite). The greenhouse was also open but it didn't offer much of a variety of plants and quickly became repetitious. What saved the trip was the car and carriage museum. The cars inside were amazing and learning about their history was very interesting. There was one man working in there that we kept bumping into and he was so much fun. He had fun little stories about the cars inside.…

We enjoyed the museum but it is not very big. We enjoyed the carriage museum more than the art museum.

The Frick varies exhibits several times a year. Clothes made out of paper. A Katherine Hepburn clothing exhibit. Very nice gift shop. Excellent cafe. Reservations recommended. Don’t forget the Frick house itself. Get the tour. So much to see.

This museum is small and free to visit (besides special exhibitions). Not all the art objects are equally interesting, but China vases are excellent, and the Rubens portrait of Princess Conde is a real masterpiece.
