I found the vehicle museum the more interesting of the two. Nice house and grounds and you can take a walk into Frick park from here.

We recently visited the Frick museum on a Sunday afternoon. The variety and size was just right. Started with the tour of the Victorian Frick home. It was well maintained and many rooms open to see. Our guide was excellent. Followed that with the self guided tours of the carriage and car museum which was nice 30 piece collection. Lastly,... More

This is a unique museum, as it is actually several buildings on lovely grounds, including art, carriages and vintage cars, house tour (which I deeply regret not doing!), and a gem of a restaurant. The Frick in New York is one of my fave museums on the planet. The art museum here is nice, but lacks the "wow" factor of... More

I visited during a presentation and got to tour the car museum and the storage area. The cars are immaculately kept with descriptions of each carriage (yes horse carriages) and car. What was interesting is that to have a carriage was more expensive than a car due to the ownership and care of the horse or horses, and different carriages... More

During our visit to The Frick, we opted to visit the art collection and the carriages & antique cars display rather than taking the house tour. The carriages and antique cars were interesting to see--not a huge collection of them by any means, but quite old (generally 1890s-1909, with just a few later models) and maintained nicely. The artwork in... More

We toured the home and also visited the car and carriage museum. Everything was very well done. Our docent was fantastic, very informative, answered all questions and was very knowledgeable of the history of the home and the Frick family. We would recommend this tour to anyone, prices were very reasonable for the quality of the tour that was offered.

We were able to visit on a community day with free entry. Usually there is a fee to tour the mansion. The guys in our group were especially interested in the carriage house and the display of old buggies, carriages, and vintage automobiles. The mansion tours were interesting with docents available to answer questions. Truly an illustration of a time... More

Located in the Point Breeze section of Pittsburgh, the "Frick" is a must see. Henry Clay Frick was an industrialist and art collector. The home is a nineteenth century residence. Besides the residence, there is a museum, the Greenhouse, a Car and Carriage Museum a gift store and a cafe'.

We visited the Frick Art museum to join a tour of the Clayton House and later view the art collection. The Clayton House has a beautiful collection of period furniture and an incredible architecture and interior design. The art museum and carriage house are terrific.

I have absolutely loved this place over the years, and visit a couple of times a year. Each time it has been decorated differently....so intrigued with this historical time period! My only negative comment is that they built some fancy shmancy visitor center, causing the place to look more corporate and artificial. This killed the authenticity that the natural grounds... More
