About the Frick:
Experience a Season of Celebrations this winter at Clayton.
Enjoy the lavishly decorated home of the Frick Family during this year’s holiday tour of Clayton. Join us as we reimagine the events of 1908, when Helen Clay Frick made her debut into society. Mural-like photo enlargements will immerse visitors in the past, while decorations evoking the splendor of the party will join the traditional poinsettias and greenery of the holiday season to offer a fresh perspective on the Frick family’s Christmas festivities in 1908.
The tour lasts for one hour and begins at the Grable Visitor Center.
Photography is not permitted in Clayton.
The Cafe at the Frick
Specializing in contemporary American cuisine, The Café at the Frick prepares unique, locally-sourced, seasonal fare served in a lush, picturesque environment. The Café offers a one-of-a kind, intimate dining experience.
Car and Carriage Museum
After the turn of the 20th century, the development of the automobile profoundly changed American life. In the Car and Carriage Museum, visitors can travel back to the time of carriages, see some of the first horseless carriages to have an impact on Pittsburgh and learn about Pittsburgh’s role in the developing automobile industry.
Greenhouse and Gardens
The path that winds through the Frick’s 5.5-acre site is lined with lush gardens and a diverse selection of trees. Our active greenhouse is a renovation and partial reconstruction of one that served the Frick family from 1897 through the 1970s.
The Frick Art Museum
Designed by Pittsburgh architects Pratt, Schafer & Slowik, the Italian Renaissance-style Frick Art Museum was built by founder Helen Clay Frick to house her collection of fine and decorative arts, as well as paintings, sculpture and porcelains that she had inherited from her father. Strengths of the collection include French 18th-century painting and decorative arts, early Italian Renaissance painting, Renaissance and Baroque bronzes, and extraordinary Chinese porcelains.
Frick Museum Store:
Located in the Grable Visitor Center, the Frick Museum Store offers a carefully curated product line reflecting the distinctive character of the Frick.
