  • It's a lovely collection and is not over crowded like other museums. It's small but is a very nice alternative to an art gallery. The architecture is interesting as well.  more »
  • I used to live in NYC and visited the Frick regularly. Now that I only visit NY, it's important for me to get there. It's the right scale, and everything in the collection is worth seeing. One of the ...  more »

  • I absolutely love the Frick. Combine a historic mansion on Fifth Avenue with some of the best art in the world and you get the Frick. The history is so cool and it's like stepping back in time as you walk through. Watch the video in the Auditorium - gives a great introduction if you've never been there. The special exhibitions are always welcome done as well, and feature both their own art as well as little-seen art from around the world. If you live in NY you can also attend classes and lectures there, which I highly recommend. I make it a point to come visit every time I'm in New York!
  • Went here on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. The original house is beautiful. the additions added when it was made a museum integrate flawlessly. I enjoyed the art collection, i could stare at a Degas or Turner all afternoon. I would highly recommend the 15 minute Guided Tour/Talk. It was very informative and brought great value and meaning to the works around me. I would have never guessed what i learned about the interior courtyard. Great stop for any art enthusiast!
  • The Frick is a beautiful museum. You are basically walking through some old rich dudes house filled with priceless works of art. The one drawback- there are lots of chairs you can't sit in. You also can't take pictures or bring in kids- both of these things I personally found refreshing. Also definitely check out their bathroom while you're there.
  • One of the most enjoyable art museums I've ever seen! The history behind the plane really gives it a unique feel. The room guards however tainted the experience with their coarse and overbearing attitudes. See other reviews. They really affect the enjoyment of this place
  • The Frick is amazing both worth the greatest art from so Manny different master's! But then you have this space that this amazing iconic art is in which is a stunning mansion house that the Fricks lived in! It's a special jewel here for New Yorkers and tourist alike. A to favorite gem stores to experience!
