I loved everything about this experience. Sure the art is amazing but there is just so much more to take in.....it's the building, the furnishings and the surrounds the absolute beauty. It's one thing to go to a gallery to see art - yep there's a Renoir on a wall - but this is another level due to the beauty... More

I love small art collections, especially those housed in their original setting and complete with decorative arts. The Frick has a stunning collection! One of my most favorite Ingres paintings is there as well as beautiful Hans Holbein portraits. There really are too many great works to name- nothing second rate. Remember children are not allowed, I think the age... More

It's very enjoyable to view the Frick's collection of old masters in such a beautiful setting right by Central Park. Two of the rooms were closed when I visited, which was not mentioned upon entry or discounted from the steep entry fee. Not a huge amount to see, though obviously what there is is impressive, and can be done in... More

Great art collection with a couple of pieces that will take your breath away. The size is so manageable as well. Thoroughly enjoyed out day at the Frick!

The Frick Collection is a great little museum, you can see it all in about 3 hours. They frequently have visiting paintings so I recommend planning your visit when an interesting piece of art is there. It's a great way to spend an afternoon and the Frick Mansion that houses the collection is absolutely stunning

I was very excited to visit this museum, but I thought it was not worth the hype. Of course, I am not an art connoisseur, but enjoy art. There were a few good pieces. Overall my visit was okay. Perhaps, I would have enjoyed it much better if I went on the free day.

The Frick Collection may not be the biggest collection of art in New York City, but the unique nature of the collection makes it well worth visiting, especially for frequent visitors to the city who have 'done' the major museums and who are looking for something different to do. Also smaller museums like the Frick are easier to cover. You... More

An excellent place to visit on any trip to NYC. Beautiful setting, not too large and never real crowded. The art is wonderful, and they often have a special showing or collection to view. Highly recommended.

This was our first visit to the Frick and we loved it. I don't know if we went on an off day, but there were only one or two other people with us in each room. We were able to get up close to each work of art and the audio guide was really great. Also, make sure you see... More

Its a weird museum because is a private collection displyed in the owners home, its very representative of a period in northamerica and speaks about the industry leaders of the time.

Thank Lorenzoespa

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
