About these ratings

Tucked inside an 18th-century New York mansion that once belonged to steel tycoon Henry Clay Frick, this robust art collection features works that span from the Renaissance to the end of the 19th century. While here, you can admire the works of renowned artists like Manet, Vermeer, Rembrandt, Goya, Degas and Turner, among other masters. The collection includes 16 permanent galleries, as well as a recently opened Portico Gallery that showcases sculpture, ceramics and decorative arts.

Recent visitors highlight the Frick as a vivid illustration of the grandeur of The Gilded Age. "This is a gem of a museum, with such beautiful paintings, in a quiet region of old Manhattan mansions. It's a wonderful feeling to just walk about the place," wrote one TripAdvisor user.

You'll find the museum located on East 70th Street, within walking distance of the Met. The easiest way to reach the Frick via subway is by taking the Lexington Avenue No. 6 train to the 68th Street–Hunter College station. The museum welcomes visitors Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; entrance to the museum costs $20 for adults, $15 for seniors 65 or older and $10 for students with valid identification, and includes an audio guide and admission to special exhibitions. For more information, check out the Frick Collection's official website. Note: Children younger than 10 are not permitted in the galleries.
