It is an art museum, and it was the residence of steel magnate Henry Clay Frick, consists of 16 galleries, during the tour you can visit all the rooms in the mansion, the hall, the staircase, the library, the interior garden walking etc. The decoration and environment does not leave anyone indifferent. The art collections that the owner chose are relaxing subjects such as portraits and landscapes, avoiding nude scenes, mythological or war.

Our advice:

There is an audio guided tour in Spanish for free.

Photography in the galleries, sculptures and furniture are not allowed, cell phones, radios or stereos either. Teaching is not allowed, only groups of six people or less are allowed to meet in the galleries to discuss the works quietly and without disturbing other visitors.

The museum and the library are accessible to visitors using wheelchairs or walkers, also has these items to people who request it.

The Frick Collection offers a limited number of private tours for small groups, groups are allowed only by appointment or previous reserve.

Children under ten years are not allowed because of the fragility of many objects that are not entirely supported and managed by cords and cabinets.
