Overview

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.

Quick visit to Yale and I love this museum. It’s not just a gallery, it’s a huge sprawling museum of epic proportions. The Asian collection is first rate as are the American landscapes. Worth a visit!!

I was amazed at the depth and breadth of artwork in the collection. All of it was utterly fascinating. And so many wonderful artists! Rothko, Manet, Monet, Turner, Picasso, Braque. I was astonished at the quality of the art for such a relatively small museum!

The team is excellent, the art collection is just baffling. As it is not so much visited, you can feel you have the whole gallery to yourself. By the time I visited there (2006), it had a Van Gogh that I could spend hours looking...More

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.
