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.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon on a whim. I hadn't researched the place before arriving, but because it's called a "gallery" I assumed it would be fairly small with a focused collection. That assumption was wrong in the best way possible. The gallery is...More

First, with the museum having no admission charge, anyone with a remote interest in Art should visit it (free street parking in New Haven on Sundays). The collection, while not as large as perhaps a larger city museum, is of high quality and broad diversity,...More

This is the ultimate university art museum. Much smaller and more manageable than a big-city mega-museum like the Met in NYC, but with so many classic works of art side-by-side (all the better for teaching!). The (relatively) recent renovation is a joy. Did we mention:...More
