  • We didn't have time for the Met, so we chose the Frick Collection. I am so glad we did. It is simply astounding that we got to see three Vermeers. We enjoyed the Docent's talk which gave context to th...  more »

  • One of the great museums of NYC. A Hidden gem if you are not aware of its existence. There are several masterpieces bought by Fink after the death of J.P Morgan and other acquisitions from great art collectors. Unfortunately you can't take any pictures once inside. But still I highly recommend this place the audio guides are free and extremely in depth about the history of each piece since its creation and the history of the artwork being purchased and gifted from one owner to the next.
  • Great museum, especially considering the building was a home. Can get very crowded. Definitely a must see. Has a couple pieces by Outer Bruegel the Elder, as well as "The White Horse," all bucket list worthy pieces for me. Also has good exhibits.
  • I honestly can't remember a piece of art in the Frick, but I can picture the house itself in my mind vividly. What a delightful place. Definitely worth an afternoon if you're an art or old New York mansion lover.
  • Definitely​ one of my favorite places in New York. It's really amazing to go inside and see this place as it used to be and also be able to appreciate great pieces of art. The audio guide is includes which es awsome.
  • Small but unforgettable N.Y. museum (Tiziano, Turner, Vermeer, Renoir, Fragonard, ...). A little out of the mainstream (no "pass" can be used here). Also interesting the family history, an example of how, sadly only in the past, a great wealth has been used to share and diffuse culture and arts.
