Yale Center for British Art – closed for renovations through 2023

The Yale Center for British Art (YCBA) will close to the public starting February 27, 2023 to implement the next phase of conservation of its iconic modernist building, designed by Louis I. Kahn (1901–1974). The project will focus on exterior improvements, including the replacement of the museum’s roof and skylights, as well as significant upgrades to the gallery lighting system. The YCBA will reopen in 2024 with a reconceived installation of its collection.

The Yale Center for British Art is open on Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm, and Sundays from noon to 5 pm. Per Yale University guidelines, all visitors ages five and older must provide proof of up-to-date COVID vaccinations (initial series plus booster if eligible).

The Center houses the largest collection of British art outside the United Kingdom, which reflects the development of British art and culture from the Elizabethan period onward. Free and open to the public. Offers exhibitions and programs, including lectures, concerts, films, symposia, tours, and family events.
