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.

One of the most beautiful and extensive collections I've ever seen at a University. The space is beautiful with open areas flooded with natural light.

this gallery had many different items on display, so you should be able to look at something of interest. Some very lame exhibits also.

The Yale University Art Gallery collection is good and many of the paintings are recognizable to even the most casual art enthusiast but what makes this gallery (they call it a gallery but it's closer to a museum) truly worth visiting is the building(s) itself....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.
