The Gallery stimulates active learning about art and the creative process through research, teaching, and dialogue among communities of Yale students, faculty, artists, scholars, alumni, and the wider public. The Gallery organizes exhibitions and educational programs to offer enjoyment and encourage inquiry, while building and maintaining its collections in trust for future generations.

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.

Fine museum with an interesting permanent collection. Nice space, and a couple of temporary exhibitions. The modern art collection is great.
