  • This review is for the Frick Madison. Yes, go! Went yesterday in NYC. If you love art, well worth it. The place was deliciously empty for a 1:30 ticket (escape the crowds and heat) and you can wander....  more

  • Only in NYC for for days, so I didn’t actually get to go, because the Frick Madison was shut four days straight because of Juneteenth and then the three days it is normally closed. Check before you...

  • See beautiful priceless Masterpieces from Holbein, Van Dyck, Manet, Greco, Renoir, Velazquez, Rembrandt, Turner and I could go on and on. The Frick at 70th and Madison is still closed as of Sept, 25 2021 for renovations. The Masterpieces are being shown at a temporary place on 945 Madison and 79th Streets. Its nice and spacious inside, its 3 stories of art, sculpture, and beautiful vases and urns. The Frick is wheelchair accessible and no photography is permitted. The staff was very helpful and nice. I can' t wait to go back. If your not already a member the cost is $22 for an adult ticket.
  • Despite what this google posting says, the Frick IS open Thurs through Sunday, nearby at a temporary location at 75th and Madison (during a renovation). It's a really interesting opportunity to see the works in a different context and this "Frick Madison" presentation has received rave reviews in the media. It's also very scerene and intimate feeling.
  • Loved this place! We came way before our reservation but were allowed in when we got there. Staff was so kind and helpful. The museum has such an amazing collection of beautiful and famous pieces. I thought it was the perfect size too, it took us about an hour to hour and a half to get through. If you're interested at all and visiting NYC, go! It's worth it!
  • Beautiful collection including masterpieces from Rembrandt, Goya, El Greco, Vermeer, Chardin, Gainsborough and so many others! The Breuer building offers meaningful temporary hosting conditions: light, space, shape and colors help to enjoy fully the collection. We can only regret certain decisions from the board which give a feeling of elitism and snobbish perception of what Arts means. Taking pictures is not allowed… disappointing… and mainly, children below 10 yo are not accepted… how could it be that culture is taking away from the next generation?
  • I was underwhelmed by the Frick. An eclectic mix of art. Almost like a Best of compilation album of major European artists but there was not really a whole lot of stuff across the 3 floors. Miniscule compared to the great galleries of Europe. I only spent an hour consuming what the Frick had to offer and for $22 I could have done something better.
