Walking around the campus leaves you awestruck! The historic sculptures, gates, and doorways are so fun to pose in front of, especially for little children. The library still has a working card catalog which is mind-blowing for the little ones!!

Amazing architecture! The place has a lot of history! And the library is amazing! Yale has free guided tours with their students so you can better understand the whole thing!

You need to be organised to see the university in all its glory. While there are sections open to the public there are many others that are not. The university does offer tours, best to take one of these.
