Growing Up at Clayton:
Summertime Hands On Tours for the Whole Family

July 3-August 31
Wednesdays and Saturdays
11:15 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.

Kids in Clayton? Not a problem! Summer is a perfect time to try something different by introducing the children in your life to the stories and surprises of Clayton. Special family-friendly tours allow children to exercise their imagination and curiosity.
Every room features a touchable item, from a swatch of velvet very much like that found on Mrs. Frick’s rocker to stereoscopes and curious household tools from long ago. Interactive fun is the norm as kids learn about the Frick family, household staff, and what daily life was like in a fancy home more than 100 years ago.

Most appropriate for kids ages six and up. FREE to all children ages 12 and under and to adult members. Non-member adult rates apply. Reservations strongly suggested. 


Ongoing tours of Clayton

Experience art and history in a distinctive, memorable way with a docent-led tour of Clayton, the historic home of the Henry Clay Frick family (above), and/or The Frick Art Museum.
