Isabelle de Borchgrave by far one of the best exhibits. Make a visit to this little gem any time of the year, any exhibit. You wont be disappointed.

I was fortunate enough to visit during the Isabelle de Borchgrave exhibit, which is breath-taking. Don't miss this exhibit. The home and the grounds are incredible as well - not to mention the gift shop.

We have visited the Frick several times. It is a relatively small museum with a rather ordinary permanent collection of art. There is a great car/carriage museum and it is worth visiting the house to see how one of the gilded age families lived. A...More
