  • I visit it last year. It is a master piece. We anjoyed it very much. It is a must. Do not miss it you won't regret. 
  • If you are an art lover this is definitely worth a visit. Old masters in elegant surroundings and a good walk to get there. 
  • I'm on the East side of Manhattan aristocrats gathered from hundreds of years ago. Though I'm in what I got 泊matchi I in times square would be fool.

  • 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.
  • Such a beautiful collection of art, especially portraiture by Rembrandt and van Dyck in the recent exhibit. They don't allow photos anywhere except the garden, which is a shame, because the galleries are beautiful. The collection is dwarfed by the Met's, but this does what it does exceptionally well. Stop by if you love European art and have the chance. The garden is serene, a great place to sit around. Pay what you want on Sunday mornings from 10am-1pm, otherwise a reasonable $10 for students. They also have free nights sometimes. Go at some point -- this is an essential NYC art museum.
  • This is one of my favorite museums, and I send out-of-town visitors here frequently. It used to be the personal residence of industrialist Henry Frick, and he was a very serious art collector who built the house with the intention of converting it to a museum after his passing. The displays are mostly as he had them in his home. Great pieces including three Vermeers and some Rembrandts in a wonderful, intimate atmosphere. The audio guide is great. They will be expanding to the second floor soon.
  • An amazing collection of works - don't miss the chance to visit. Two superb Holbeins and an El Greco on one wall, and so much else!
  • Not a big museum by most standards, but one of the most elegant ones in NYC. Beautifully laid out and interesting selection of artwork. One of the favourite areas of the museum is the fountain courtyard. Wonderful place to just sit, relax, and listen to the water fountain.
