“Yale University Art Gallery,renovated and expanded, is opened again!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Founded in 1832, the Gallery occupied a small building of Yale old campus. Now,180 years later, it covers a block and a half of Chapel Street! .After ten years of $135 million renovation, the Gallery is a much better place for more than 4,000 art works stretched across three buildings: Street Hall, the Old Art Gallery and the 1953 new addition.. Besides on the top of the Old Art gallery there is a rooftop sculpture terrace with works of A.Maillol and H.Moore. The expansion of the gallery gave more space to Indo-Pacific art, early Italian art, American sculpture and paintings, modern and contemporary art, African art, Asian art, photographs, prints and drawings, coins and medals..If you enjoy art and want to know more about it, visit Yale Art gallery. It's free and open to the public every day except on Mon. ..

“Things to see”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Couple of museums to look at -- British art and general art (2 museums) as well as a couple famous architecture buildings that are open to the public; the campus is very pleasant for walking around; however beware that New Haven is in general a very rough city with high crime and you have to keep an eye out and not wander too far from the prescribed paths onto the proscribed ones

“Historic world educator”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

I love Yale University. The architecture is incredible. The history of the university is linked closely with the history of the city of New Haven. The people who have graduted from Yale are a who's who in almost every aspect of the world from politics, to business, banking, and acting.
