Touring Yale University – Art Galleries & the Yale Bowl
Visiting New England's Campuses
One of the most famed institutes in the world, Yale University has been situated in New Haven, found near North Haven and West Haven, in coastal Connecticut since 1701 – making it the third oldest college in the country.
Visitors to this well-known university have a full dance card, as this 800-acre urban campus features museums, art galleries, sports teams and even the Yale Golf Course.
First, pick out your favorite Yale blue outfit for a game with the Bulldogs in the Yale Bowl. Not a sports fan? The Yale campus offers a number of cultural centers waiting for your visit – centers like the Yale University Collection of Musical Instruments and Yale University Art Gallery.
Art aficionados can spend hours at this gallery, thanks to collections by Van Gogh and Picasso, as well as the Yale Center for British Art – which holds the most extensive British art collection outside of the United Kingdom. Traveling with kids? Take them to the family-friendly Peabody Museum of Natural History for a day of exploration for that little archeologist.
