Our Commitment to Education


Exciting changes are coming to the Frick and to our School Programs!

We opened our new Orientation Center this summer, and the second phase of our expansion project begins in August. Phase two includes a new Education Center and new transportation galleries.

The Car and Carriage Museum will be closed during the 2014-2015 school year, but we still have much to offer you and your students.

The Frick is committed to offering engaging, thoughtful programs that explore the interdisciplinary nature of the site. 

From fine art in The Frick Art Museum to primary sources in Clayton to the history of transportation in our Car and Carriage Museum, our programs stress hands-on, interactive learning, provide collaborative experiences, and encourage deductive reasoning and critical thinking for all ages.

School Programs

School programs   Knowledgeable.  Engaging.  Interdisciplinary. Relevant.

These are just some of the words teachers have used to describe our museum educators and the tours and workshops we provide for students of all ages.

Take a look at our hands-on tours and creative workshops that bring classrooms back year after year.  

Teacher Opportunities

Act 48   Just as we are committed to educating students, the Frick strives to serve as a dynamic resource for teachers throughout the community.  Frick teacher programs are interactive, standards-based explorations of a variety of interdisciplinary subjects.
