Beautiful building and amazing exhibition. This museum has a nice large exhibition, from classic painting and sculptures to contemporary art. The building itself it's beautiful, it doesn't say much from the outside but the interior is modern, integrates the space with the exhibitions and with the outside light. This place exceeded my expectations. Very important to notice that the entry is free.

What a great place to spend several days because you can’t see it all in a single day without complete sensory overload. Between the depth of art and the architecture of the building I think you could spend several days enjoying everything from primitive African head dresses to the masters to modern artists like Picasso and Pollack. Tired of culture and in need of sustainance? New Haven has some of the most varied and delicious food offerings in Connecticut. I can’t wait to go back.

This is hands down my favorite museum in the world. Designed by famous architect Louis Khan (his last - albeit unfinished - work), it is an architectural marvel hosting some of the most beautiful artistic gems this world has ever seen. I’d especially recommend a trip to the library hidden at the museum’s center.

This once so what? museum,that wasn't even woth an hour of viewing,has been renovated;into an institution-in which one could view five centuries of authentically British Art. This even includes,a considerable amount of very current 21st.Century,British Art. Allow, two-hours or more,for this improved museum.
