A New York cultural gem, The Frick Collection allows visitors to step back to opulent Millionaire's Row during the Industrial Revolution. Housed in the neoclassical Fifth Avenue mansion of steel baron, Henry Clay Frick, The Frick Collection is one of the most renowned small art museums in the world.

Contrary to the fact that Mr. Frick has been vilified by history for ruthlessness in business dealings, even the earliest plans for the residence demonstrate his intention to bequeath the building and his art to establish a public gallery.

The collection is comprised of Old Master paintings including works by Constable, Goya, Manet, Monet, Rembrandt, Renoir, and Whistler and paintings, sculpture and décor from the Renaissance to the late 19th century with several special exhibitions annually. Designed to have the atmosphere of a private home rather than a public space, the Frick Collection offers visitors an intimate encounter with the exhibits with very few items encased in glass and many of the pieces in the same position as when they were first hung by the Fricks. In an effort to preserve both the accessibility to the artwork and the pieces themselves, The Frick Collection has a strict age restrictions for visitors; children under 10 are not permitted and individuals under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

A visit to the Frick Collection should take about two hours, but if you choose take advantage of one of the free audio tours which navigates several small, secluded rooms and offers a wealth of insight into the paintings, sculptures and furniture, a visit can easily take up to four hours.
