Frick Art & Historical Center
In 1970, Helen Clay Frick had the Frick Art Museum constructed to allow public enjoyment of her art collection. Miss Frick returned to Pittsburgh in 1981 and lived at Clayton until her death in 1984.
Although Miss Frick had carefully maintained Clayton, complete restoration of the home prior to opening as a house museum was a four-year project. Open to the public in 1990, Clayton now welcomes over 100,000 visitors a year and provides them with an intimate glimpse into the life of the Frick family a century ago.
Frick Art & Historical Center grounds, the Frick Art Museum, Car and Carriage Museum, and Greenhouse are free.
Tours of Clayton, the restored home of Henry Clay Frick, are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $6 for students. Reservations are recommended. Other tours and programs are subject to various admission fees.
Frick Art & Historical Center is located approximately 20 minutes east of downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the city’s East End. The following public buses provide service to the site: 67A, C, E, F; 71C; 74.
