This new venue is perfect for the Frick collection. For me, the art work felt more accessible. The staff was super helpful and polite.

After living in NYC for so many years, I couldn't believe I hadn't ever gone to the Frick. I'm so glad I did because it was spectacular. I've been to the Met over a dozen times and it still takes my breath away. I love the Frick on a similar level but appreciate how more manageable it is for an afternoon visit. I recommend downloading the app so you can listen to the commentary on each individual piece. It's worth that extra bit of time listening and learning!
Love love LOVE this place. Thank you to The Frick Collection family for being an LA installment and staple, and most importantly FREE. Incredible works of art here from amazing artists that people get to see that otherwise wouldn't have.
