The Frick Pittsburgh


The Frick Pittsburgh is located on the estate of late-19th-century industrialist Henry Clay Frick and is the steward of collections left as a legacy to the people of Pittsburgh by Frick’s daughter, Helen Clay Frick. The permanent collections include fine and decorative arts, cars, carriages, historic objects, and buildings. The Frick experience includes The Frick Art Museum, the Car and Carriage Museum, Clayton, the Frick family Gilded Age mansion, and 5.5 acres of beautifully landscaped lawns and gardens. Also included are an Education Center, the Frick children’s Playhouse (designed by renowned architects Alden & Harlow), a large working Greenhouse (also designed by Alden & Harlow), The Café at the Frick, and the Grable Visitor Center, which houses the Frick Museum Store.

With close to sixty varieties of trees growing around the site, visitors can stroll along the pathways and discover Copper Beech, Horse Chestnut, Saucer Magnolias, Weeping Willow, Hemlocks, Japanese Maples and other beautiful species of trees at varying levels of maturity. The Kentucky Coffee trees are perhaps one of the most talked about trees growing at The Frick. Over the years, these trees have matured to the point where they now act as a natural overhead canopy for visitors walking the pathway on their way to Clayton, The Café or the Greenhouse, and the unusual pods they drop allow for endless questions and conversations.
