The Frick comprises a number of venues located on the original Frick family estate. I went on a Friday evening when the place was open until 9 and almost empty. The main attractions include Clayton, the family home, a small greenhouse, a carriage house restaurant, a gift shop, a car garage and the Helen Frick museum. The house, which you... More

Since we arrived early for our tour we had ample opportunity to visit the art museum and wander the gardens and green house on the property. Art museum isn't large and doesn't take too long to tour. The green house was filled with spring flowers and plants, a garden lovers delight. After our tour of the house we visited the... More

Really enjoyed our tour of the Frick home and carriage museum. We made reservations on the same day as our tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting. The home is lovely and has such a complete collection of original furnishings and art. The carriage museum has an awesome collection of vintage cars. The grounds are... More

Our second visit here was yesterday (April 2017) and we still haven't made it into the Clayton house. The tours are space limited, so, book ahead. However, their car museum and art museum are so excellent. This is definitely a case of quality over quantity. The car museum has many cars from the early 1900 (some late 1800s) and buggies... More

We stopped here for about 45 minutes on a Saturday morning. Did not tour the house, but enjoyed the free tours of the art museum and the carriage house. Really cool assortment of vehicles, including old carriages, a sleigh, some really cool early autos, and some real showstoppers (Stanley Steamer, Rolls Royce, etc). We also walked the grounds, which I... More

Since we were on a limited time schedule, we only got to go to the art museum part of this great center. Next time we will be sure to see more. The museum is about a 20 minute ride from downtown Pittsburgh and the ride there takes you through some beautiful neighborhoods. Our GPS got us right there and there... More

A trip into Pittsburgh would not be the same without going to the Frick Art and Historical Center. The grounds, carriage/car garage, home, and art center are not just maintained, they are lovingly cared for. The tour of the house was one of the best I have ever been on; it is more than a museum, it is a family... More

One of my favorite places to visit. My husband and I have visited multiple times and brought family and friends visiting from out of town. The tours of the Mansion are amazing and give you such a great glimpse into life during those years and Pittsburgh's history. Well worth the trip and the grounds are also enjoyable to walk around...

I've been here several times during different times of the year. If you're lucky and get a really good tour guide it makes it all the more interesting. This is not a place for young children as they can't sit down or touch anything. The first tour I went on was the very best and I can still remember some... More

On a mild February day, I visit The Frick. There are a few buildings to visit with no charge, although it would be great if everyone left a small donation to keep this cultural place thriving! I also toured "Clayton," the Frick mansion which does have a fee for the tour, but it's worth it. Our docent gave an interesting... More
