  • Beautiful collection of classical works, in an amazing setting of a luxury early century home turned museum. Went on the free day, and got my headset and spent hours among beautiful large works being captivated and inspired as an artist. There were only a few impressionist/ expressionist works which was a bummer because those are my favorites but it was fascinating to see what the masters before the impressionists were creating and how that might have inspired the next generation of the time. The staff were all courteous, the setting was peaceful, and they offer free drawing at the Frick on certain nights which I have signed up for, I think that's such a beautiful idea and I love an establishment that engages the community. Highly recommend this place for a visit.
  • It's an impressive private collection showing many masters of the era. However, it is quite small, relatively pricy and one cannot take photos which is a shame. The building itself is beautiful.
  • It's hard to know where to start when describing the Frick Collection, because the building, the former home of Henry Clay Frick, is as amazing as the highly refined, connoisseur's collection of European paintings, sculptures, furniture and porcelains, that it houses. Located on 5th Avenue between 70th an 71st street on the Upper East Side , the building occupies an entire city block that was the talk of the town when it was built and remains a marvel and monument to the Gilded Age. Unless you are arriving by bus or taxi, the museum is about a 20 min. walk from the closest subway station ( 68th Street & Lexington Ave) on the Green Line. Adult admission price is $22, but there are discounts for seniors and students and reduced or free admission on certain days (check the website for details).
  • The aren't too many Guilded Age mansions you can still walk through in NY that are close to their original design and layout, but this building is one of them. The price of entry is too high given the size of the modest collection. For a few extra dollars you can visit The Metropolitan or MoMA. The Museum doesn't allow photography of the collection, which seems odd when so many images are available through their app, website, and the 360 degree walk through views available via Google.
  • It is a pleasant and beautiful place. To make the Best of it (and not complain about high fee), go on a Sunday morning, before 1PM. Pay (or not) as much as you like :-)
