    An often overlooked gem in the NYC museum scene. The art is stunning and so is the residence its housed in. Take advantage of the free audio guide to learn about the man behind it all.

    More stunning than the art is the building its self. Enjoying roaming the various rooms & don't forget to look up. The ceilings are just as ornate and masterfully crafted, love the Gainsborough works

    Wow! I really enjoyed my visit. I ended up arriving an hour before close so I had to pick and choose which of the audio tour to listen to but it was still well worth the entrance fee! Will be back!

    Skip the other museums. This place has amazing scope of artists, beautiful architecture & interesting history. Not to mention a lovely atrium to relax & enjoy. My new favorite museum in NYC.

    Walking into the Frick Collection on the Upper East Side feels like stepping back in time to nineteenth-century Paris. Special exhibits can be hard to get into; advance ticketing is recommended. Read more

    Such a beautifully curated collection of artwork from all over Europe - the interior decorating is quite a sight to marvel at as well. Grab a headset on your way in to learn about the masterpieces!

    If you're a student, Frick's student membership is the best membership deal in the city! Only 25$ for an entire year with unlimited admissions. Seriously it's the best investment you will ever make!

    I’m not that into pre-19th century art, but the Frick is an amazingly curated collection. I took an art history class and there were no fewer than 10 paintings we discussed in this small museum

    This building is awesome. I can't believe the place used to be a guy's residence. It's one of the biggest private art collections in the world. The roman room is amazing here.

    See if a docent is around to give you a brief tour of the gallery. Make sure to get the receiver before entering the fountain room that plays audio explanations of the art pieces.

    Aside from artist and title, few descriptions are provided, so the audio guide is recommended. See the film in the Music Room to learn about Frick, his passion for art, and the home's history

    American Alliance of Museums (AAM) members skip the snaking lines and get free admission to the Mauritshuis exhibit (but still need the admission tickets).

    lovely collection of art. It’s quiet and not as crowded as most galleries in the city, which I appreciated. Do visit if you can!

    I was pleasantly surprised by how amazing this place was. The collection is stunning, and even on the "pay what you wish" day it's easy to navigate.

    In case you aren't part of the 1%, this museum is a great place to play house. The indoor garden is peaceful and perfect for writing or daydreaming. Student discount membership is the best way to go.

    You can see the entire museum in one afternoon and not feel rushed. It's like visiting your secret grandfather's art gallery tucked inside a mansion. Cozy and intimate atmosphere.

    After gawking at the old-school woodwork, original furniture, lush gardens, and early 20th-century glitz in general, check out the masterpieces of Goya, El Greco, van Dyck, Whistler, and more.

    Henry Clay Frick’s private art holdings shares space with a bowling alley. After he passed away in 1919, his daughter Helen turned it into a catalog room, but original details remain. Read more

    It's completely okay to dress up in early 20th century garb, sit quietly in the indoor garden, and read poetry. The museum membership is a great deal. Dress up and go there daily. www.luvrae.com

    Visit the personal collection of Clay Henry Frick, housed inside his former mansion. Probably the most beautiful, intimate museum in New York.

    Precision and Splendor is up in the Portico until February. Have you picked out your favorite clock or watch? Listen for the chimes of the clocks housed in other parts of the museum as well!

    The Frick Collection is an architectural beauty. But do you know about the underground bowling alley? Commissioned by Frick in 1914, it was restored in 1997 but is kept under tight lock and key.

    Henry Clay Frick might have gotten his art by making a few enemies, but the collection on display in his former house is stunning. Degas, Goya, Velazquez, and many more hang on his walls.

    Underrated museum, amazing curations. Come for free Sundays, surprisingly not too crowded.

    The mansion was originally built to be a residence and gallery for Henry Clay Frick. After Adelaide Frick’s death, it was converted to a museum, which opened in 1935.

    It's quaint but monotone, reflecting closely Frick's inclinations. I do not share the robber barron's tastes, so found the collection uninteresting. A modern mausoleum

    Up the street from Metropolitan Museum of Art. Full of wonderful art, just the right size, not overwhelming or as crowded.

    This is where the clueless aged NYer blossoms! If you hope to enjoy the magnificence of this Frick collection at a distance forget it! Old NY likes their art at a six inch proximity!
