This special exhibit is currently on display until sept 4, 2016 and is a must see if you traveling through the area. The cases are filled with a collection that will astonish your eyes, many being anything you could image. The description add content to how and why many shoes became art objects not really to be worn. These 150... More

My niece and I spent this Saturday afternoon immersed in everything that is high heels. It's a girly girl dream come true. This exhibit is not to be missed if you claim a shoe fetish like I do. This was my first time in this venue, can't wait to explore it more. There is a lecture hall, a car/carriage museum,... More

Went primarily to see the Killer Heels exhibit, which was beautiful. My only criticism would be that the lighting was variable, possibly because it was set up in spaces that aren't necessarily used for those displays generally. Loved the garage/car musuem, as well as the greenhouse and the house itself. The cafe was okay, but not someplace I would go... More

This was my first time visiting here and not only did I want to see it's temporary exhibit "Killer heels" but also tour the rest of the grounds. I purchased a membership which entitles me to a free tour of the Clayton house. All I needed to do was go to the visitor's center and sign up for one. Although... More

This place is not to be missed if you want to get a better understanding of the life and times of the men who were at the center of the steel industry back in the day. Not to be missed in my opinion.

Ok, so I've only been to Pittsburgh once and never before to The Frick. But this is a seriously cool estate. Granted, it helped they have this fun Killer Heels exhibit, which among other things, has Christian Louboutin's ballerine heels on display. Not familiar? Louboutin based his his cosmetics look on its design. I'm a huge Loubie fan! Nonetheless, the... More

We visited the Africa Art and Historical Center several times and it was a relaxing and informative experience. The house and grounds are so beautiful and filled with many paintings and other works of art. We began with the museum, which while small had a lot of beautiful paintings as well as other fine art and antiques, including some Medieval... More

We took a tour of the historic Frick mansion, the Claiborne house, which was very interesting. It was good to get insights into the family. We ate in the cafe afterwards with good food and a great view of the garden.

We saw the house tour and then I went to see the Killer Heels exhibition, the art of the high-heeled shoe, and my husband the old cars museum.
