About
The Frick Collection is your home for art from the Renaissance to the early twentieth century. Founded by Henry Clay Frick (1849–1919), the museum offers visitors intimate encounters with one of the world’s foremost collections of European fine and decorative arts. The Frick—now in its temporary location at Frick Madison, at the Breuer-designed building at 945 Madison Avenue, while its historic buildings undergo renovation—features celebrated works by Rembrandt, Fragonard, Ingres, Bellini, Vermeer, and more. The Frick Art Reference Library, a leading art historical research center, was established one hundred years ago by Helen Clay Frick and provides access to its rich collections for scholars and the public alike.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
How to get there
  • 68th St – Hunter College • 6 min walk
  • 77th St • 9 min walk

Exquisite Art Collection!! Beautifully Displayed!!
Jun 2021
Having visited the Frick Collection exhibits many times in tha past, the Frick Madison was a very pleasant experience.
Instead of viewing small parts of the collection in the relatively small display area of the mansion, the ex-Whitney venue does great credit to these divine works of art.
While the old mansion is getting a face lift, we have an unparalleled opportunity to view what is probably one of the finest private art collections in the world in wide open spaces, enabling to sit back and absorb these amazing masterpieces.
The world's greatest painters are on show, including Rembrandt, Manet, Monet, Degas, plus many more.
In addition to the paintings, there are clocks, enamel works, sculptures and many more parts of the collection.
We spent a good three hours and enjoyed it thoroughly.
This is a not-to-be-missed chance for art lovers to be up close to some of the greatest art creations in the world.
Be sure to book your timed tickets in advance!!
Incredible Collection!! Amazing Museum!!

The best painting collection in the world
Jun 2021
I've been going to the Frick on a regular basis for 40 years, but seeing the paintings displayed in the Breuer space is a once in a lifetime opportunity. For the first time, you can approach the Bellini!

Arguably, the Frick is the best collection in the world / size and quality- three Vermeers out of 36! And three of the very best. The Holbein! The Turners! The Ingres! The Goya and Velasquez!. . .

This should be at the top of the list of any visitor to NYC and every NYorker!

The visit is extermely well organized and not too crowded. Be sure to get your tickets in advance.

Frick Madison is a major upgrade over the original.
Jun 2021
The Frick Madison is an airy, spacious venue for the spectacular art in the collection. Gone is the stuffy, claustrophobic atmosphere of the mansion. The staff members, unlike my first visit in 2013, were pleasant, engaging, and welcoming. The galleries were cleanly defined, with ample spaces to sit and absorb the beauty. I do wish digital photography was permitted, but, oh well. Highly recommended!

Exquisite art. Some rude staff members.

Visted the Frick Madison last weekend. Wonderful temporary home of the Frick’s vast and stunning collection of art. Unfortunately the visit was slightly tarnished by a couple of very rude museum aides, but that didn’t completely detract from the experience.

I went to the Frick for my birthday with some friends and had a wonderful time. The collection is very impressive with a range of artwork, and a free audio guide that gave an explanation about most of the pieces. I highly recommend the Frick Collection to anyone with a few hours to spare!

Great way to see wonderful art in a new space!
May 2021 • Couples
The Frick collection is currently housed in the former Met Breuer building as Frick Madison. It’s strange at first to see these renowned early works hanging on bare walls with no furniture or objects around them. But it makes you appreciate the art in a new way. I especially enjoyed seeing the huge Fragonard series, on the progress of love on these gray walls, and I loved the two tiered displays of ceramic pots and vases, one of blue and white pieces and the other of some in shades of magenta.
With Covid precautions in place, you must reserve ahead of time and are subject to having your temperature taken and wearing a mask.
Well worth a visit!

The Most Beautiful Museum in NYC
Apr 2021
Great European art with in a lovely mansion. It is a museum that you can actually do in one day. A relaxing alternative to New York's bigger museums.

Nicely Presented!!
Apr 2021 • Couples
I was leery about visiting since the Frick mansion is in itself a work of art and intriguing to walk about, and The Met Breuer was just ok.

Here, the Frick collection in the Breuer building is spaced out, wonderfully presented, and somehow you even are able to appreciate the upside-down nature of Breuer building.

Overall, a nice exhibit spaced out on floors 2, 3 and 4. Degas, Monet, Renoir, Vermeer, Rembrandt, El Greco, Whistler, Lawrence,... Amazing collection!

Staircase is easily accessible if you want to avoid the elevators.
You cannot take pictures.

Pics of my favorite works of art that you can see there are attached.

Frick Madison

It's better than the original. The mansion was great but the lighting wasn't and in some cases neither was the hanging of the pictures. Here it the collection has been better curated and the lighting is good. Well worth a visit.
