The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

The Frick Collection, New York

New York is packed with museums, so how do you choose? The choice is easy: Escape the masses at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and head to the Frick Collection, just off Fifth Avenue on the Upper East Side. This jewel box of a museum (No. 2 on the TripAdvisor list) houses a high-quality collection of European masterpieces by Rembrandt, Boucher, Turner and Gainsborough, among others; small bronzes; 18th century French furniture; and porcelains housed in six galleries within the former mansion of industrialist Henry Clay Frick. There's no better place to cool off during a sweaty New York summer than in the museum's Garden Court. Upcoming: "Renaissance and Baroque Bronzes From the Hill Collection," Jan. 28-June 15. Info: Pictured: The Fragonard Room.
