Housed in the Gilded Age mansion of Henry Clay Frick, The Frick Collection is one of the most important museums of Western fine art and decorative arts in the world.
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.
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!
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
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.
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
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
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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..
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Amazing collection, one of my favorite places in New York. Probably the most incredible private art collection in the world.
This art museum gets overshadowed by the nearby Met, but it has an impressive art collection! Check out the paintings by Bellini, Rembrandt, Turner and Vermeer!
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!
This is my favorite museum. The audio guides are free and fantastic. Sundays from 11 am - 1 pm admission is pay what you wish. Leave time to admire the atrium.
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
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.
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!
The setting is beautiful and this museum features some of the most acclaimed works of art! Stop by for a taste of refined culture
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.
Wander through the rooms like you’re a houseguest while drooling over Mr. Frick’s fine art collection. Be warned, there’s NO PHOTOGRAPHY allowed.
American Alliance of Museums (AAM) members skip the snaking lines and get free admission to the Mauritshuis exhibit (but still need the admission tickets).
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)
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!)
Check out the 10-15 minute video for some background on Frick himself and how he built his collection. Don't forget to check out the Vermeers!
The room wich bear the portrait paintings of Sir Thomas Morus, Cromwell (by Holbein) and El Grego's Saint Jerome is just amazing.
One of the best Art Museums. Not so many paintings but reserve time so you can utilise the excellent audio guide recordings
Up the street from Metropolitan Museum of Art. Full of wonderful art, just the right size, not overwhelming or as crowded.
The most intimate art museum I've ever been to; highly recommended for lovers of Dutch masters, portraits and landscapes.
A must see. Amazing collection of art and antiques. The Vermeers are special.
One of my fav. museums in NYC. Four Vermeer paintings here. Can find a Renoir here as well. : A
Admire Goya, El Greco, Constable, Corot paintings in a relaxing setting. Sit for at least 10 minutes in the Garden Court.
Give what u want b/w 11 and 1 on Sundays. A decent collection of art of Renaissance.
The Holbeins and the St Francis by Bellini alone require at least a half hour. By far one of the greatest Art collections in existence...
Sit in the Gardens or view some classic European masterpieces in a setting that feels like a trip back in time.
This gorgeous gem on the Upper East Side features some of the world’s most famous works art in a beautiful and historical setting.
