About The Frick Collection:
The Frick Collection's policy on children (no visitors under 10, and those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult) enables adult visitors to have an intimate experience with the various pieces of art in the collection. Very few items are displayed behind glass, and it is easy to get close to nearly everything in the collection. Displaying the pieces in this way would be impossible if young children were allowed in the museum, as the chance of disaster would be far too high.
The audio tour is included with the cost of admission, and offers a wealth of insight into the paintings, sculpture, furniture and the mansion itself. Using the audio tour to learn more about pieces of interest, a visit to the Frick's permanent collection can take about 2 hours. The Frick also has frequently changing temporary exhibitions.
