i have been seeing this museum advertised in the Pittsburgh airport for a long time so I decided to take the time to visit. While it was interesting and the location was beautiful, it wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped it would be. The grounds were beautiful, the art museum was nice, beautifully done and maintained but small. I think the best part was the automobile and carriage museum. That was beautifully done and had some wonderful examples of autos that I had never seen before.
If you have the time and want to kill an hour or so.....go.

When I was looking yesterday for a free attraction, the Frick came up literally everywhere. However the actual museum is NOT free. You can look around the outside of the place and in the yard for free (something you can do at any museum ever, so not something noteworthy).

Visiting this place gives you a glimpse into how the filthy rich lived during the Golden Age. The guides at the mansion are very knowledgeable. Not far from the mansion is sits the Frick children's playhouse. That play house is bigger than my apartment lol. It's nice to walk around the beautiful manicured grounds on a cool evening. Be sure to stop by the Car and Carriage Museum and drool at all the classic cars!

Nice way to spend a couple of hours on a pleasant afternoon. We enjoyed the architecture and landscaping as much as the art. The automobiles were a highlight and the emphasis on women's rights was an unexpected twist. The special display of dresses was quite impressive. We did not tour the home.
