    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.

    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!

    Harvard charges its students to visit its galleries. This is free to all. Yale wins again.

    This place is any historians dream! Check out the ancient artifacts and unique paintings. Just note: if you grab coffee before hand they won't let you bring it in.

    If you're departing from Union Station and have an hour to kill, take a metro cab over to see the art. Admission is free, and the cab is $7-8.

    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.
