The Frick Collection, an eclectic museum

Discover the Frick Collection, a modest museum in size but with an imposing collection.

Opened to the public in 1935 and today considered one of the most important art museums of New York, The Frick Collection houses 16 permanent galleries and several rooms dedicated to temporary exhibitions. Admire the paintings of artists as famous as Renoir, Bellini, Goya or Rembrandt, alongside sculptures, 18th-century French porcelain, Limoges enamels and Oriental rugs.

Take a moment to pause in the immense interior hall of this august mansion on Fifth Avenue. You will clearly see that everything has stayed as it was in the early 20th century, when Henry Clay Frick, a rich steel industrialist and above all, art collector, had this private residence constructed. Make sure to use the audio visit to discover the wealth of art works, the profusion of furniture and the different rooms in which Mr. Frick lived. Depending on the day of your visit, you may have the occasion to participate in conferences, concerts and dance or theatre events as well as meetings with artists and writers.
