Try our history mystery game! On the way to Clayton, stop by the table to use clues, a matching game, and the power of deduction to figure out the purpose of tools from the Gilded Age and who would have used them.

Grable Visitor Center

Frick Art Museum

The Red Dress collaborative embroidery project links red fabric with bright colors of thread as a platform to give voice to the stories and testimonies of women around the world, many who are vulnerable and live in poverty. During the Frick's free Regional Asset Day, performers from the Hill Dance Academy Theatre will show the silent power and aesthetics of fabric and movement as they dance throughout the museum and around the Red Dress.
