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.

This was a must-visit for our Hamilton-obsessed teenager. The mixtape opens with "This is no John Trumbull" which leads one to wonder than what is. In addition to the revolutionary war art we also really enjoyed the modern painters. Great museum!

Excellent experience. Didn't expect to find world class art in New Haven CT. Spend the day. Art is accessible, up close, under guard of course. Much more satisfying than many European venues.

It is absolutely a wonderful place to visit and spend time. The building itself is huge and it will take some time to see the entire collection!

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.
