I loved my visit to the Yale art museum. We were not permitted to take in large objects such as backpacks and big purses. They do provide lockers at the entrance of the building, that with the use of a quarter you are able to access. There are gaurds on every floor, and they are more than happy to assist you with whatever needs you may have. The bathrooms were located at the entrance of the building from what i could tell. Most importantly entrance to this art gallery is free, but you are encouraged to give a small donation.

Yale's art gallery is truly spectacular... you must go to marvel at the buildings, the exhibits and the outstanding tours that seem to occur daily. My new favorite is Mesoamerica, just off the welcoming lobby. No cafe, no gift shop...just exquisite art perfectly displayed and terrific tours, talks and lectures.

This museum/gallery was better than I expected and it was free! There was so much to see in there. We spent close to 3 hours. Highly recommend if you are visiting the area.

This museum is very nicely organized. The spaces feel spacious but not too big. The African art collection is amazing.

For those interested in the art genre this is the place to go. It is a very big place with so much to see up to four floors and even an outdoor exhibit. Yes it is totally free as well. You can choose to have a tour guide with a group or you can go on your own. Everything from contemporary art to modern art.
