Overview

Yale University Art Gallery is the oldest college art museum in America. The Gallery’s encyclopedic holdings of 200,000 objects range from ancient times to the present day and represent civilizations from around the globe. FREE and open to the public. On December 12, 2012, the Yale University Art Gallery celebrated the grand opening of the renovated and expanded museum. The expanded Gallery transforms the visitor experience of both the museum and its esteemed collections. The project united the 1953 modernist structure designed by Louis Kahn, the 1928 Old Yale Art Gallery, and the 1866 Street Hall into one continuous structure while maintaining the distinctive architectural identity of each.

I was really impressed with all the painting, statues and objects in the museum, It's amazing to offer all the history with free admission. The post cards are a must buy, because they are really nice.

Wonderful afternoon spent wandering this gallery with my mom. We both enjoyed the African Mask Exhibit. We sent all of our wedding guests to see and even joined the museum!

This museum is excellent. The collection is worth seeing and it's a pleasant way to spend a few hours in downtown New Haven. When friends visit, I always include the Yale Art Gallery in a tour of the city.

Yes, I would think so. This is a well equipped, modern urban hotel. But ask them!

They say that they have a limited number of wheelchairs available, so if you plan ahead, I'm sure they can accommodate you.
