We look forward to your visit. Here, you’ll experience the culture and refinement of the Gilded Age. The museum and its collections are the legacy of Helen Clay Frick, daughter of Henry Clay Frick, one of America’s greatest industrialists and art collectors. During your time at the Frick, you can tour Clayton, the historic home of Henry Clay Frick; view fine and decorative arts and artifacts; see magnificent exhibitions; take part in educational programs and concerts; enjoy fine dining; take a casual stroll through our 5.5 acres of lush gardens; and more.
There’s so much to do here, and much of it can be found by browsing this website. When you arrive at the Frick—where parking is always free in our off street lot—stop by our Grable Visitor Center, where one of our friendly Museum Experience Associates will answer your questions and provide information to help you make the most of your time here. While in the Grable Visitor Center, you can learn more about the Frick at our iPad bar and touch table, relax with a book to learn more about our history and collections, and shop in the Museum Store.
