Yale University Art Gallery displays art from nearly all cultures, but it's most famous for its collection of early Italian paintings, African sculptures, and modern art. Located in several buildings on the university campus, the gallery also houses world-renowned collections of American decorative and fine arts from as far back as the 17th century. Of particular note is the small collection of rare American silver. Opened in 1832, the gallery recently underwent renovations to connect three separate galleries while maintaining their distinct architectural styles; it reopened in 2012. Yale University Art Gallery is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.
Yale University Art Gallery reviews
Such a cool collection of artwork! And best of all, it’s free! We got there about an hour before it closed which didn’t leave much time to leisurely walk through but we managed to hit most of the highlights! Great modern art as well as some super cool tribal pieces! Highly recommend!
Best art gallery you could go to. Easily beats famous New York, French, Italian, and all other galleries in both collection and atmosphere. The Yale gallery has one of, if not the definitive, best collections of art in the world. Don’t miss great collections of some of the most famous artists of their time, with works ranging from antiquity to modern. Despite this storied collection, the gallery is not crowded, the staff are incredibly kind, helpful, and knowledgeable. Not to mention the gallery is 100% FREE to anyone! Make sure to stop by the Trumbull gallery on the second floor and his grave on the first to thank him for his legacy requiring free admission to this amazing collection.
