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.

A nice variety, interesting pieces, and always a staff member nearby for interesting tidbits. The gallery itself is within a beautiful building with a bit of a castle feel.

This art gallery has got it all, and the admission is free! It's not too big, so you'll be able to spend time looking at everything. The collection includes greats as Van Gogh, Monet, Manet, Pollock and so many more!

They say that they have a limited number of wheelchairs available, so if you plan ahead, I'm sure they can accommodate you.
