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, and/or The Frick Art Museum. These tours provide you with opportunities to view fine and decorative arts from the Renaissance to the present, as well as learn how the Frick family lived during the turn of the 20th century.
