I came here for a school project for art appreciation class. Having been in other art galleries, and from other countries, I didn't expect to love this place so much as I don't appreciate art as one should. This place opened my eyes. Every piece is week organized and spaces apart so you can devote time admiring art. Sections didn't get taken away to be dedicated to famous artists. Every piece got just as much attention as the other. And the staff. Such wonderful and cheerful people. They will help you in anyway they can, even if they don't know the answer, they will find it for you. I love being in and feeling old architecture. And this place is so pristine it feels like it has a soul. I meant to only stay till 6 pm or earlier. I ended up staying till closing! I'm coming back when I have a full day off and will enjoy it even more. Thanks to the fantastic and cooperative staff for teaching, and helping me in everyway possible.

It's free public art gallery and we'll maintained. It's quite big and can easily take 3-4 hours. Has got rest rooms and drinking water facility. Good one

I love this place. Free resource! Great African collection and some great paintings are here including “The Night Cafe” by van Gogh. There’s Rothko, Kandinsky, Gorky, Ledger, Braque, Picasso, Duchamp, Pollock, and much more! Don't miss the peaceful sculpture garden on the way out. In my opinion Georges Braque was so much more talented than Picasso but might have lacked in charisma and salesmanship to have the successful long career Picasso enjoyed.

“It is impossible to feel grateful and depressed in the same moment.” ~ Naomi Williams “Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” ~ Mark Twain I am grateful and thankful that Mrs.Reynolds and Mr. Dunn work at this place .They are both helpfull and kind. This collection of artwork,in this museum,is second to none.

Seems pointless to write a positive review for Yale's art gallery. Wish I could write a snide one. But it's awesome. Perfectly legible intact coins from 300 BC and artwork categorized by nation of origin from ancient to contemporary. And it's free. And graduate art students give a variety of theme-based guided tours. And you should give it a whirl.
