    go the frick and browse the art collection, make sure to pick up a headset - totally worth it.

    shea · April 4, 2009

    Because the collections were mainly developed by a single individual, they have a cohesion & personality that others can’t match, and the unique setting (custom built for their display) enhances that. Read more · May 2, 2012

    More 18th-century portraits by British artists than any other city museum. Hogarth and Gainsborough are well represented, and you can see a portrait of Lady Hamilton as Nature by George Romney.

    Sit by the gorgeous fountain for a contemplative moment to prepare for seeing Bellini's exquisite "St. Francis." (Fun fact: There used to be a bowling alley in the Frick's basement!)

    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.

    Wednesday is usually the quietest day to roam the galleries.

    A personal favorite and perfect retreat on a hot summer day, or dreary winter afternoon.

    The security guards here are such jerks, it should be called, "The Prick Collection."

    Make sure to pick up the tour guide device ... Get a much better experience than just wandering around (many of the pieces do not have detailed descriptions next to them)

    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.

    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.
