Thought provoking collections. Helpful staff. Great location. Worth going back a few times, especially for Picasso.
Some of the best art is kept here and it's free! I spent about an hour and a half here. Wasn't over crowded like most museums on a Saturday. Highly recommend it.
The art here is timeless! I love the Bible based historic items. I took a free Bible tour here and was very amazed at how many things here prove what the Bible says it's true! I recommend it 100%!
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!
Not an art fan, but got dragged in with consideration for future ballgames. After the initial phase of sleepiness, they turned the lights on brighter and I woke up. There were some cartoon character like things, some guy in a tank top that they said was painted in the 1870s, so I did some research. And that kept me entertained. That plus goofy selfies.
