We managed in about 3 hours to see almost all of the collection which contains so many great British artists of the 18th and 19th centuries, especially portraits and landscapes. All beautifully displayed in an understated but appealing building.

Just completed the docent tour of Victorian Radicals: From the Pre-Raphaelites to the Arts and Crafts Movement which runs until May 10, 2020. This was the first time some of these paintings and other works have ever been shown outside of the UK, and well worth the visit! Open any book from the Pre-Raphaelite period and you will see these works. Our docent “Boots” was terrific too. She really brought the time period to life. She shared so many of the political, cultural and social details, none of us wanted the tour to end.

The museum is free. It has a collection of British paints and some artifacts. The building itself is a piece of art. Louis Kahn is the architect.

This is one of the great Museums in the northeast and a treasure for New Haven There actually are no other museums for British art- the architecture is brilliant and provides a magical environment for a world class collection Temporary exhibits are also terrific Run don’t walk to visit!

Worth the trip to New Haven even if you aren't going to visit Yale. The collection is phenomenal. I particularly enjoyed the Constables. Also, the gift shop has a great collection of British items.
