    A gorgeous collection, low key crowds, and for once, help (not annoying) audio tour.

    Give what u want b/w 11 and 1 on Sundays. A decent collection of art of Renaissance.

    Gorgeous setting for the collection. I particularly liked the Holbein portraits of Thomas Cromwell and Sir Thomas More - I grew up studying them

    An absolutely stunning place

  • Daniel B.

    I love that they keep the timepieces wound, it's wonderful to see / hear clocks from the 17th and 18th century in motion.

    Amazing collection, one of my favorite places in New York. Probably the most incredible private art collection in the world.

    The most intimate art museum I've ever been to; highly recommended for lovers of Dutch masters, portraits and landscapes.

    The Fragonard room is a great example of pre-Revolution French rococo art.

    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.

    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.

  • Daniel K.

    BE SURE NOT TO TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS! Enjoy strolling through the halls and viewing some decadent art pieces!

    Daniel Karran · February 3
  • Spencer V.

    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

    Spencer Vairo · January 31

    Gorgeous old residence turned gallery.

    Daniel Tewfik · January 18

    This place should be called "Paintings of Old Dead White People"

    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.

    An awesome collection. The artwork is not labeled like traditional museums.

    Justin Ordoveza · August 28, 2014
  • Dan J.

    Not a "museum" with white walls abound but instead, sheer quality over quantity defines the Frick. Titian, Rembrandt, Ingres, Goya, Hogarth, just to name a few art giants that reside here. Unreal.

    Dan Jones · August 22, 2014
  • Noa T.

    It's a fantastic collection of great painting masters. Must see for art enthusiast a good time for all.

    Sundays from 11AM-1PM are pay-as-you-wish admission. Take advantage of it to see this preserved mansion that houses a wide array of artwork.

    Too many great pieces to name. Totally worth grabbing a headset on your way in.

    when you get there, watch the film in the auditorium first. it explains each room's significance to Frick.

    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.

    The Frick Collection magnolias are blooming! Spring is here.
