This is a fantastic little secret in CT. Picasso in New Haven! Picasso + Pepe's Pizza = perfection. Great for kids. My toddlers have been exposure to fantastic, diverse fine art, plus contemporary, local art. And here's the best thing: it's FREE!

Huge and high quality. You could spend all day in here. There's a large variety of art ranging from African Masks to Greek Sculptures to Postmodernism so you're likely to find something that interests you.

Varied collection from different parts of the world. Really nice pieces in each gallery. Free to get in (at least on the Saturday we visited). Fair amount of steps/stairs, but there are plenty of elevators for access. Worth a stop if you are in New Haven.

One of my favorite museums. Amazing collection of art, similar artists than what you would see at the MoMA or other renowned museums. Best, it is free!
