The Frick Art & Historical Center is a collection of museums and historically significant buildings, located at 7227 Reynolds Street, Pittsburgh. It is formed around the Frick Family’s 19th century residence, a marvellous ancestral house known as Clayton, which is also part of the center. ‘The Frick’, as it is popularly known, focuses on the interpretations of the life and times of Henry Clay Frick, who was a prolific Pittsburgh industrialist and art collector. The Center contains an impressive collection of paintings, sculptures and other valuable works of art, which sees it, welcome over 100,000 visitors a year.

The museum began as an eleven room house, which served as the residence of The Fricks from 1881 to 1905.  However, the premises were only opened to the public in 1990, when it became the house of the Frick’s enormous art collection. In 1997, the carriage house was enlarged to create the car and carriage museum, which houses some very interesting automobiles from the 1950s and earlier. The art collection includes a large number of works from the Renaissance and Baroque bronzes, as well as an extensive collection of the works of Jean- Francois Millet. It also has some nineteenth century European paintings, as well as late medieval paintings of a devotional nature by many prominent Italian artists.

  • Automobiles on display include an 1881 Brougham, 1898 Panhard et Levassor Tonneau, 1903 Baker Electric, 1906 Outing Wagon, 1909 Bailey Electric Phaeton, 1909 Keystone Sixty-Six Roadster, amongst others.
  • Some of the most famous painters with works in the collection are Apollonio Di Giovanni ("Scenes from Homer's Odyssey"), Jean-Louis de Marne ("Seine at Saint Cloud"), Carle Van Loo, Maurice Quentin de la Tour, Peter Paul Rubens, Jan Steen, Jan van Os, and Arthur Devis.
  • There is also a beautifully maintained greenhouse as well as a children’s playhouse for the kids.

The Frick Art & Historical Center has been around for as long as most Pittsburgh residents can remember. Its quaint appearance can be misleading, for inside it is an art collection that would be the root of many a connoisseur’s envy. The picturesque grounds and old fashioned houses only add to its charm.

  • I work at the Cafe at The Frick and have been a patron to the museums and grounds many times even before working there. All are great and the grounds are great for a nice stroll. To the cafe, the food is truly to dye for. So delicious. The menu changes all the time, so if you come back more than once you can try plenty of new things. Same with the deserts. The pastry chef is always trying new creative things. Making a reservation in advance is very important to getting a table at the cafe. However, if you are not a member you can only make same day reservations (become a member 🙂 ).

  • Very nice museum for its smaller size. Includes art work, car and cartridge section, children's section as well as special exhibits. The current is dresses, gowns, mens attire, jewelry, as well as shoes all made of painted paper. You look at these and have to remind yourself this is all made from paper, but you would swear it is cloth. Even the lace looks real! Well worth the visit, planning on returning again.

  • Such a beautiful home and grounds. The tour was excellent and highly recommend. Very informative and the guide was able to answer all questions, even went into detail about the art that was collected by the family. The carriage house was very nice as well, we didn't stop in at the art museum at the front due to lack of time. If parking is full in the lot on site, the neighboring streets offer street parking as well for free.

  • A museum that's free? Can't beat it. They have lovely art and some seriously neat cars and carriages. If you want to tour the house, that does cost money. But if you just want to kill an hour, the museum is a great place to do it.

  • So many things to see and do here and most of it is free to the public except for the special exhibitions. We regularly go on nice days just to walk the grounds and visit the cafe. You can definitely lose some time wandering through the carriage museum, art collection, green house, mansion, and even just the gift shop. There are always events happening too. The event planning staff here is certainly creative and community minded.
