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

Worth taking the drive from the North Shore to Squirrel Hill area. The house is maintained in the late 1800’s decor and dining room is set for dinner. The woodwork is outstanding and artwork displayed. Interesting to see how one could live in that era....More
