Yale Days

Welcome to Yale Days at the Center!

We will be open to Yale ID holders on Friday, March 12, from noon to 7 pm; and on Saturday, March 13, and Sunday, March 14, from noon to 4 pm.

Yale Policy

In accordance with Yale University visitor guidelines, only Yale students, faculty, and staff are currently allowed on campus. Unfortunately, at this time we cannot accommodate members of the general public or other short-term visitors. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you in the future.

Requirements for Entry

All visitors must hold a valid Yale ID card, which is required for entry to the museum.

Free timed-entry tickets are strongly encouraged. Walk-in visitors will be accommodated based on capacity. 

If you are unable to visit us in person, please explore our online exhibitions and programs or browse the offerings in our Museum Shop.

Safety Precautions

We are working to reduce risk by requiring everyone at the Center to wear a face mask and maintain physical distance. To adhere to physical-distancing requirements, the Center has reduced the overall capacity of the building to below 25 percent.

We have implemented daily staff health checks, established a more frequent cleaning schedule with an emphasis on sanitizing high-touch surfaces throughout the day, and provided hand-sanitizer stations throughout the Center. We will continue to monitor and follow federal, state, city, and university guidelines to inform our operations.
