Seasons at the Frick

Back to School Special

September programs are discounted $2 per student.

Peak Seasons

Clayton programs in December and May sell out quickly. These program rates include an extra $1.00 fee.

Winter Months

January, February and March offer more flexibility in available dates. For groups larger than 80 students, consider this time frame. Take advantage of our “Defeat-the-Doldrums” discount by scheduling a program to occur in January and receive $2 off the cost per student.

Weather Issues

If a weather-related delay or cancellation for the school district results in a program cancellation, you can reschedule or receive a full refund.

Summer Months

Most programs are still available.

Our Chaperone Policy

As displayed below, the following numbers of chaperones are required and are admitted free. Personal student aides are not included in the count and are admitted free. Additional chaperones are admitted at the student rate, with some exceptions. With groups larger than 80 students, space considerations may require us to limit the number of additional chaperones.

Chaperones are required in the following ratios:

Programs Chaperones Students
Kindergarten–Grade 1 1 5
Letterboxing 1 5
Clayton and Unite programs 1 8
The Frick Art Museum programs 1 10
The Lunchroom

If lunchtime is not included in your program, limited facilities may be available at a cost of $30 per group.
Remember to check availability of the lunchroom when you book your program. It may not be available later and it must be reserved in advance. Also, don’t forget that adding lunchtime lengthens your field trip time by 30 minutes.


Once again we are grateful to an anonymous donor who has provided us with scholarship funds for a limited number of school groups to visit the Frick. Full or partial scholarships are awarded to Pennsylvania schools based on the percentage of students enrolled in the free or reduced lunch program on a first come, first served basis. Call 412-342-4091 for more information.

Contact us Monday–Friday, 9:00 a.m–5:00 p.m. for more information or to schedule your program.
