Security Procedures

The safety of The Frick Collection’s visitors, staff, volunteers, and collections is of the highest importance. When you visit the Frick, you will encounter security measures to ensure your safety and the safety of the works of art contained within. You will be greeted upon entry by one of our security personnel who will conduct a hand-check of all bags, briefcases, purses, and containers.

The following items are not permitted: guns, knives, scissors, tools, spray paint, liquids, beverages, or any other object the Frick deems to be a concern.

Because of the security measures, the lines for entry to the museum may be long during peak seasons and holidays. We ask for your patience, cooperation, and assistance in keeping a safe environment.

Please note: Galleries begin to close at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and 4:45 p.m. on Sunday.
