    Mind your step. Colonel John Trumbull and his wife are resting beneath the portrait of Washington, not under the tombstone where the Roman sculptures are!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
