Have been meaning to visit this pearl at Yale for a year and finally made a trek to New Haven. Impressive gift shop and free entry for all who visit. Multiple floors of special exhibition and a comprehensive permanent collection of important paintings. The space is modern and offers wonderful lighting and exceptional vistas of the exhibits from multiple levels allowing the guest to view and review pieces over and over with different perspective and almost sudden surprise. The Eileen Hogan exhibit currently on view was a delicious treat into the style and discipline of an extraordinary talent.
