It's a psychosomatic condition that allegedly occurs when individuals are exposed to objects or phenomena of great beauty. It's easy to feel in the Frick's mansion full of exquisite art and furnishings. Maybe it has more of an effect because it's an oasis of tranquility...More

We loved the Frick Collection. The building is gorgeous. The collection is displayed well and we had a great time on a cold day in December. We would definitely go back. Great history lessons and beautiful art, furniture, and architechture.

This museum was pretty cool, housed in a historic mansion. The courtyard is breathtaking. Please note, you cannot take pictures with your phone and the Ushers will say something if they see you. On Wednesday afternoons, they have pay what you wish.

The setting and the quality of the paintings make for an great collection. A short tour with an audio guide is particularly pleasant, The smaller size makes for a very enjoyable museum and a must see in New York.

The Frick collection is an oasis on the upper east side. It is calm and uncrowded. A stark contrast to MoMA and the Met, which can feel like visiting an art theme park and be overwhelmingly crowded. On the other hand, this atmosphere is caused...More

Yes. There is a ramp to the left of the public entrance, and if you enter through the door at the bottom of that path, staff will direct you to the 1914 elevator that Mr. Frick used. Thank you for asking.
