Visiting the Frick

Tours

Experience art and history in a distinctive, memorable way with a docent-led tour of Clayton, the historic home of the Henry Clay Frick family, and/or The Frick Art Museum. These tours provide you with opportunities to view fine and decorative arts from the Renaissance to the present, as well as learn how the Frick family lived during the turn of the 20th century.

Available Tours

We offer a variety of tours throughout the year. See below for current tour offerings. 
Experience Clayton through the eyes of the women who lived and worked there during the turn of the 20th century. Social changes of the Gilded Age allowed for the rise of the "New Woman" as more women broke free from the "cult of domesticity" and a new working class emerged. The women of Clayton represent a range of social, economic, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. Artifcats, personal acessories, photographs, and archival documents will illuminate the stories of Adelaide Frick and her daughter Helen as well as domestic staff including governess Marika Ogiz, lady's maid Pauline Turon, and maids Bridget Conroy and Mary Coyne. 

Reservations are strongly recommended.
Photography is not permitted in Clayton.

Clayton is an example of both the home of a wealthy Pittsburgh family and of late Victorian architecture and interior design. Visitors on the Life in the Gilded Age tour have the unique experience of learning about the Frick family, local history and Victorian social customs in the family’s home, where more than 90% of the furniture and artifacts on display are original.
