  • 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.....  more »
  • Exquisite collection of paintings, furniture and relics. The central courtyard is tranquil enough for you to want to read or have a picnic. Be aware there's no food allowed in the museum. This includes beverages of any sort. The garden courtyard is also the only place where you can touch things and take photographs. These rules are strictly enforced.
  • Walking around the museum, the Frick house, is an enchanting experience. The opulence highlights the beauty of the art pieces, from paintings and sculptures. Inside is an open garden area with fountain which is beautiful. On the first Friday of the month they host a special evening with free entry and talks on the history of the place and certain art pieces.
  • What an amazing place! Everything is perfectly organized. There are so many great pieces of art! There was a movie explaining the history of the place and the collection and we realized what a gifted person Mr. Frick was and how his collection was respected and promoted in the best possible way. It's a must see!!
  • Pretty spectacular collection of early modern and some older stuff. Come for the Vermeer and Rembrandt, stay for the gorgeous garden and touring the opulent mansion converted into a museum. I went on Friday when it was free and got there at 6. The line was around the block but it moved relatively quickly and I didn't feel crowded when i was inside.
  • I Love it! Such beauty, elegance. This place is breath taking. Be ready to see the most beautiful sight, you will ever see.. 😍
