Museums & Galleries

Chances are you will learn something new every time you enter Yale’s world-class museums and galleries — all of them open to the public, almost all of them free of charge.

There you will find cultural and scientific treasures, from Van Gogh’s “Night Café” to the Gutenberg Bible to historic musical instruments to fossils of the earliest dinosaurs that walked the earth. There, too, are works by leading innovators in art, architecture, moving image, and design.

First-hand encounters with Yale’s collections are an integral part of teaching and learning across the university and forge creative connections that inspire tomorrow’s leaders. People of all ages are invited to visit the collections, join an exhibition tour, take classes with artists and curators, and enjoy the many other public programs offered throughout the year.
