SPECIAL ADVISORY: For the health and safety of our visitors and staff, the Yale University Art Gallery is closed to the public, including all Yale ID holders, until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Groups and Class Visits

The Gallery is working closely with Yale University leadership to safeguard against the spread of COVID-19. Following University guidelines, we are able to host in-person guided or self-guided group visits for Yale students, faculty, and staff.

School and Youth Groups

The Gallery is unable to host in-person class visits at this time but remains committed to working with school and youth groups. Many images are available for download through our collection search. We are also able to offer a limited number of digital sessions led by the museum’s Gallery Teachers, Yale graduate students trained as museum educators. Digital sessions focus on close looking at a select number of artworks using high-resolution images. Sessions are based on the educational goals of the teacher and may incorporate interactive activities. To inquire about possibilities for virtual class visits, or for a discussion of how art can animate educational goals, contact yuag.education@yale.edu. We require at least three weeks’ notice and can only accommodate a small number of requests.

College and University Course Visits

The Gallery is unable to host in-person visits for non-Yale courses at this time but remains committed to university teaching. Many images are available for download through our collection search. In some cases, Gallery staff may be available to join virtual classes to share high-resolution images and answer questions. To inquire about possibilities for virtual class visits, or for a discussion of how art can animate pedagogical goals, contact yuag.acadaff@yale.edu.
