Had Helen Clay Frick not had a dislike of modern art which led to a disagreement with the University of Pittsburgh, the Frick Art Museum and the art that it contains might have been in Oakland on the Pitt campus. As it was, Helen decided to keep her art closer to home, housing it in the lovely building that we see today. In addition to her collection, the Frick today brings fascinating exhibits to Pittsburgh, embracing culture, social history, and contemporary artisans along the way. It is well worth a visit. And if you’re in Pittsburgh in the summer, check the schedule for their Friday night free outdoor concerts to see if they’re “playing your song” this weekend!

Worth taking the drive from the North Shore to Squirrel Hill area. The house is maintained in the late 1800’s decor and dining room is set for dinner. The woodwork is outstanding and artwork displayed. Interesting to see how one could live in that era. The added bonus was the carriage and car exhibit in the carriage house. I think we spent just as much time viewing the cars and carriages as we did on the tour of the house and premises.

Prompted us to tour The Frick Collection in NYC the following week. Amazing artwork in NYC, but the story really commenced in Pittsburgh.

This recent show of the works of Isabelle DeBorchegrave was just awesome. I continue to be impressed with the shows.

i have been seeing this museum advertised in the Pittsburgh airport for a long time so I decided to take the time to visit. While it was interesting and the location was beautiful, it wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped it would be. The grounds were beautiful, the art museum was nice, beautifully done and maintained but small. I think the best part was the automobile and carriage museum. That was beautifully done and had some wonderful examples of autos that I had never seen before.
If you have the time and want to kill an hour or so.....go.

When I was looking yesterday for a free attraction, the Frick came up literally everywhere. However the actual museum is NOT free. You can look around the outside of the place and in the yard for free (something you can do at any museum ever, so not something noteworthy).

Visiting this place gives you a glimpse into how the filthy rich lived during the Golden Age. The guides at the mansion are very knowledgeable. Not far from the mansion is sits the Frick children's playhouse. That play house is bigger than my apartment lol. It's nice to walk around the beautiful manicured grounds on a cool evening. Be sure to stop by the Car and Carriage Museum and drool at all the classic cars!

Nice way to spend a couple of hours on a pleasant afternoon. We enjoyed the architecture and landscaping as much as the art. The automobiles were a highlight and the emphasis on women's rights was an unexpected twist. The special display of dresses was quite impressive. We did not tour the home.

The dishes here are very creative, tasty and not your usual restaurant menu fare. I would try it if you want a unique menu.

Bread is good, the waitstaffs polite, and good. You can have wine at lunch and the coffee is great.

Walk around in the garden season, so many nice flowers.

There was a time when Frick and Carnegie were the industrial power house team in Pittsburgh - they built massive fortunes on the backs of labor and degradation of the environment, But, they did give back much of that fortune in gifts of museums, parks, libraries, universities and the Frick Art and Historical Center is part of that legacy. Tour the mansion house, enjoy the car collection, the conservatory, and the touring exhibits - stop by the massive Frick Park next door. The Tea House is wonderful - make a reservation for high tea. But try to keep it all in historical perspective.

The Frick Art is more than an art museum. The admission to the Frick grounds, Car and Carriage Museum, Greenhouse, and permanent collection is free.Special exhibits and Clayton House require paid admission.
This Frick Art has reciprocity with NARM and ROAM, which allow free admission to the special exhibit and to the Clayton House. Visited Pittsburgh during the summer withtthe purpose to see the special Impressionist Exhibit. There were quality paintings and some were unusual pieces from well known impressionist artists. There are also very nice paintings from the permanent collection. The Car & Carriage Museum had a diverse collection of cars and carriages in great condition. The tour of the Clayton House was very well done with a knowledgeable docent. It was very nice to see the Frick family's furnishings and learn about their lives in that home. The grounds were well kept. There is also a Cafe in the complex.

The trip to Pittsburgh was well worth it. The Frick Art and Historical Center was much more that we expected. Highly recommend to those who loves art and history.
