Expert review of The Frick Collection

A jewel of a museum that houses underrated treasures.

The Frick Collection is arguably New York’s most engaging small art museum with a stunning collection of paintings and sculptures by great European masters like De Goya, El Greco, Bellini, and Rembrandt, who were all handpicked by the pre-Depression steel magnate Henry Clay Frick. Housed in what was once Frick’s impressive Fifth Avenue mansion, the intimate collection is manageable - in contrast to the grandeur and vastness of the Metropolitan Museum of Art - and the gardens are a tranquil refuge from the frenetic city outside.

Price advice: 

Admission is US$18 for adults. Children under 10 are not admitted to the Collection.
