Why you should go. The Frick Collection is one of those small museums that will never exhaust you. With its beautiful art collections and gardens, it is the perfect way to start of your weekend.
Following the massive success of its Summer Night series, the Frick Collection will open its doors for free every first Friday of the month (except for September and January).
Stroll over to one of the guided tours, admire the collections on your own or try your hand at sketching the fountains in the courtyard while sipping sparkling water.

Zurbarán’s Jacob and His Twelve Sons: Paintings from Auckland Castle through April 22, 2018
