  • Exquisite collection of paintings, furniture and relics. The central courtyard is tranquil enough for you to want to read or have a picnic. Be aware there's no food allowed in the museum. This includes beverages of any sort. The garden courtyard is also the only place where you can touch things and take photographs. These rules are strictly enforced.
  • Walking around the museum, the Frick house, is an enchanting experience. The opulence highlights the beauty of the art pieces, from paintings and sculptures. Inside is an open garden area with fountain which is beautiful. On the first Friday of the month they host a special evening with free entry and talks on the history of the place and certain art pieces.
