This collection is very personal to Miss Frick, has some lovely gems like a Hubert Robert of the Visit of the Magi and a treasure by Meissonier. The Frick's old cars and carriages are lots of fun too. The cafe food was delicious. Did not visit the house.

Only had time for the car & carriage museum, which was free. Small but wonderful display of turn of century cars & carriages. Would love to return & tour the Frick Mansion.

If your in the neighborhood, don't miss the chance to tour the Clayton House. It is well worth the money. Full of beautiful and original pieces of art and furniture, the guide provides an insightful history into the lives of the Frick family. The green house had an exhibition of artwork and seedlings for purchase. We enjoyed our visit!

Tucked away in the Point Breeze neighborhood, this jewel of the area provides a great venue for both new exhibits along with great history of our area.

The Frick comprises a number of venues located on the original Frick family estate. I went on a Friday evening when the place was open until 9 and almost empty. The main attractions include Clayton, the family home, a small greenhouse, a carriage house restaurant, a gift shop, a car garage and the Helen Frick museum. The house, which you... More

Since we arrived early for our tour we had ample opportunity to visit the art museum and wander the gardens and green house on the property. Art museum isn't large and doesn't take too long to tour. The green house was filled with spring flowers and plants, a garden lovers delight. After our tour of the house we visited the... More

Our second visit here was yesterday (April 2017) and we still haven't made it into the Clayton house. The tours are space limited, so, book ahead. However, their car museum and art museum are so excellent. This is definitely a case of quality over quantity. The car museum has many cars from the early 1900 (some late 1800s) and buggies... More
