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.

My husband and I took a tour of the museum when we first moved here. We were surprised at how much is in the collection- it is like having a mini MET right in our backyard!

It may not be the biggest, but this is one of the best curated, most thoughtfully laid out, beautiful art museums I've been to. It's big enough that you can't cover everything in one visit, but small enough to take in an incredibly wide variety...More

This is a great place to visit to see history. I visited the art gallery to see the beautiful art work. I have lived in the area a long time and never had a chance to see the great art work.

Do not miss this museum. One of my favorite spots to return to in NHV over the years. Perfectly manageable size to spend a few hours

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!

Decided to visit the Art Museum for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. Couldn't see everything, but the collection of paintings from Europe and Pre-1900 are wonderful. As a collector, I was also excited by the coins and medals on display. The museum is...More

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.
