Owner description: 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 thoroughly enjoyed visiting this excellent museum. It has an outstanding cross section of art with several real masterpieces. Especially attractive is the scale/size of the museum which is large enough to house a variety of works, yet small enough that you can see and study it all without feeling overwhelm as happens in some really large venues. We will go here again when we visit New Haven.

Yale University Art Gallery is a superb smorgasbord of people, places, and things for thousands of years, from all over the planet. Exceptional selections, wonderfully curated for either serious or casual gallery visitors. If you're shopping for images and ideas or just simple pleasure, your time here will be pleasant and will remain with you too.

We enjoyed our recent visit to this free art museum. There was a temporary photography exhibit featuring photos from the western US that our party really enjoyed. It was fantastic by itself. The permanent collection features a spectrum of American and European painting as well as African and Asian art. It could use a bit of focus but not a half bad art museum.

I wish I'd had more time, but really enjoyed the photo show there. My sister-in-law said the asian art also was terrific. Great location, love the free admission.
