“Best most manageable museum in NYC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

The man's home turned into a museum that continued to grow its collection after his passing. Interesting architecture, furniture and art collection. There are a few pieces in here you see all the time in print and to just happen about them in someone's private collection is amazing.

We did it w three kids (10, 12 and 14) and it was very manageable and enjoyed by all. Worth the price of admission. Maybe an hour and a half to really see it all. Very easy and about the only thing we did in NYC where we weren't moved by a sea of people.

A must see!

“NYC History/Art Upclose”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

It is an easy way to see a part of NYC history and 'live' with the some of the masterpieces as its habitants once did. Charming. Excellent audio guide. Sunday AM from 11 to 1 is 'pay what you wish' time...go early as there is always a line. Be sure to watch the film about the Frick in the drawing room.

“Spectacular Beyond Description”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Regardless of one’s knowledge of art and architectural history, The Frick Collection should not be missed on a visit to -- or when living in -- New York City. The extraordinary collection of important art, furniture and artistic objects are displayed in the massive home of Henry Clay Frick, one of America’s great industrialists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The building is as interesting and exciting as its contents. Frick’s knowledge and appreciation of great art and architecture, with the wealth to acquire them, is our good fortune, and The Frick Collection must be seen on a two or three hour visit to Mr. Frick’s mind boggling mansion in New York City.

“Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Go visit this wonderful house museum on Fifth Avenue, it's like walking into another world, the world of the robber barons and all their spoils and art. The place is so serene, it's almost like meditation, the collection amazing, Mr Frick did have very good taste in art.
