It is like a peak into another way of life. Make sure you use the audio tour and listen to the narration on the individual rooms.

Run, don't walk to the current exhibit of Rembrandt, Hals and Vermeer at the Frick. This is such a beautiful mansion and this exhibit (including Vermeer's "Girl with the Pearl Earring" is absolutely stunning. Make sure to get the audio tour. We spend about 4 hours there and could easily have spent another one. I just wish they had more benches for resting. There are very few. Hint: order your tickets in advance for a timed entry. You can stay as long as you want, but you will avoid a very long line that must involve at least a 30 minute wait in the cold.

The wait at a recent lunchtime for about 15 minutes was because of the special if small exhibition of paintings from a Hague gallery at the present time, but it was worth it. This was the second visit in two years, and the collection is certainly worth revisiting.

We loved our tour of the Frick. The Swedsh Art exhibit was on when we were there. All of the rooms and the art were wonderful!

One of my favourite museums in NYC. Stunning building and amazing collection of paintings, sculptures and furniture.
There was a special exhibition of Dutch masters when we visited so we saw 'The girl with the pearl earring' which was magic!
Free audio tour definitely worth taking!
