  • At 600 yen ($4.50) it maybe worth the experience but 1/2 the collection was closed and 1/2 the art shown on the flyer was out on loan. The grounds and the rodin sculptures are very nice...

  • Last year I was so impressed by this museum without the time to really go through it, I had to return to see a very nice French impressionist collection containing famous artists including van Gogh...

  • There appears to be some special musical performances occasionally. I was lucky enough to be there on the 11th for a free trio concert, featuring some Christmas pieces as well as others. The cafe was sold out of all their sandwiches, but I was able to enjoy a latte with a 100-yen off coupon.
  • The museum's curators bring in wonderful, thought-provoking exhibits. There is a tremendous emphasis on diversity, with artists from minority communities often featured prominently. Holding a distinguished permanent collection of its own, which is rotated through the galleries on a regular basis, The Frye shares masterpieces in a way that makes the art feel intimately accessible. The docents and other staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Visitors will appreciate the building's architectural features including a reflecting pool outside along Terry Avenue. The Frey hosts lectures and has a delightful gift shop that is not to be missed, and guests can also enjoy culinary offerings provided by talented chefs at Café Frieda. (At the time of this posting, some services are temporarily scheduled on a reduced basis. It is recommended that one phone ahead or look at the website.) The Frye is a community gem. There is no charge to enter the museum.
