    One of CT's world class museums. And FREE. A wide variety of exhibits from ancient to modern. Think of it as a mini MET, without the crowds and easier parking.

    This gallery is not only free, but a friend and I agreed that some of the pieces in this collection rival the pieces in the Boston MFA. And did I mention it's FREE?

    Don't miss the 4th floor sculpture terrace for a breath of fresh air and sweeping views of New Haven. On Thursday nights when the Gallery is open until 8pm, enjoy the sunset. Magical!

    Make sure to visit the Kahn space as well as the older spaces. Physical context can make such a difference in how you experience art.
