  • Amazing collection of British art... the largest outside of the UK. The museum is a masterpiece of the architect Louis I. Kahn... recently restored to its original splendor by George Knight. A must-see for any visitor to New Haven.
  • My wife is a docent at YCBA. Great place to learn and be entertained at any age, all for free. Even the building itself is amazing and iconic! A must see.
