Yale University Art Gallery

The Yale University Art Gallery is the oldest college art museum in America. The Gallery’s encyclopedic collection ranges from ancient times to the present day and represents cultures from around the globe. FREE and open to the public.

The Gallery’s permanent collection was founded in 1832 when the patriot-artist John Trumbull gave more than one hundred of his paintings to Yale College. Since that time, the collection has grown to number more than 250,000 objects representing cultures from around the globe and ranging in date from ancient times to the present day.
