    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.

    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.

    Been here 25+ times
    Sundays between 11am-1pm. You can pay what you want to get an admission. Don't miss! And you can also enjoy the interior and the garden..

    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

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.
