New Haven

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — The Yale Peabody Museum will be offering free admission once it reopens in 2024.

Right now it’s undergoing its first major renovation in nearly a century.

The museum said in a statement to News 8, “The renovated museum will feature a new K-12 Education Center with dedicated classrooms for local schoolchildren, a light-filled Central Gallery designed to host outreach events year-round, and a new outdoor courtyard space for community gatherings. In all, the museum’s total gallery space will expand by over 50%.”

Director of the Peabody, David Skelly, said the free admission is “a tool in a much larger effort toward becoming a more accessible and welcoming institution.

The Yale University Art Gallery and Yale Center for British Art already do not charge people to get in.
