A museum housed in the mansion of a former robber baron, The Frick Collection is fascinating, in that unlike your standard museum, the collection is very personal. This is artwork (paintings, drawings, sculptures, etc) collected by Henry Frick himself.

This wonderful museum has an impressive collection but even more impressive is the gorgeous home and internal courtyard that houses it. Unlike most museums, the collection is relatively small but the layout makes a visit here seem more like a visit to a rich friend's home than a trip to a museum.

Amazing artwork in an elegant setting. I love that this museum is located in Henry Frick's old home, where he and his wife lived while in New York. The house itself is beautiful - the rooms have high ceilings and are furnished with all sorts of antiques. Enjoying the paintings the way they would be hung in a home setting is a really nice change from the white walls of a museum. Location can't be beat - right next to Central Park. Budget tip - Go on one of the days where you pay what you wish.

A visit to Frick's estate will leave you in absolute awe of his extensive collection of famous paintings, bronze work, furniture and rare items. Not only did Frick have the most beautiful taste in art, but his collection left his legacy. A visit to The Frick Collection will be a surreal expedition to one of the most gorgeous time capsules in Manhattan.

This is one of my favorite places in New York and of all the museums in the city, this might be my very favorite. On my tenth birthday, my father took me to the Frick for the first time, because although he had wanted to take me to the Frick for years, they do not allow children under ten to visit the collection. I have loved the Frick ever since that first visit and as old-fashioned and surprising as their age restriction might seem, there is something to be said for the silent reverence one finds inside the rooms of the Frick.Recommended for:Family Travelers

The Frick, free, is the best thing going for your short visit to the City. Got just an hour or two free on that quick in and out you have on your hands? Well, stop through here and pick up some great knowledge about the history of the city, some great art, and be the envy of those who missed out.
The other gem like this is the Campbell Apartment. There are a few others, too, but these will get you started.Recommended for:History Buffs

A fantastic museum. If the crowds or the vast collection overwhelm you at the MET, this is an excellent choice. Its small and intimate so you have time to see everything in under 2 hours. The mansion is just as interesting as the art. Great collection of French furniture.

Smaller, more intimate museum on the Upper East Side. The Frick Collection includes paintings by European artists, major works of sculpture, eighteenth-century French furniture and porcelains, Limoges enamels, Oriental rugs, and other works.
The Frick Collection is housed in the New York mansion built by Henry Clay Frick, one of America’s most successful coke and steel industrialists.
