A Day trip to Yale's campus in New Haven will include private tours of both the Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library and the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library. The Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library is one of the world's leading research libraries and serves as the primary collection for the study of art, architecture, and drama at Yale. Attendees will get to see selections from Arts Library Special Collections, which features artists' books and volumes on the book arts, fine printing, typography, and illustration, as well as archival materials and thesis projects from the Schools of Art, Architecture, and Drama. The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library is one of the world's largest libraries devoted entirely to rare books and manuscripts and is Yale's principal repository for literary archives, early manuscripts, and rare books. It is located in a stunning building with panes made out of very thin marble that filter in natural light and allow for rare materials to be exhibited without damage.

The Day Trip will also include free time to spend viewing the world class art collections at the Yale University Art Gallery or the Yale Center for British Art. The Tour will end with a modernist architecture tour of New Haven, which boasts buildings by Louis Kahn, Paul Rudolph and Eero Saarinen.

Directions: Meet the Tour Wrangler at the designated meeting point near the Registration Desk, Promenade West, on the Hilton Hotel's second floor at 8:15 AM to walk together to Grand Central. We will be taking a Metro North train from Grand Central that departs at 9:04 AM and arrive at 11:06 AM in New Haven. The train back will depart at 4:14 PM and return to New York at 6:20 PM. Please note that lunch is not included, but there are many restaurants and lunch spots right on campus.
Accessibility: This tour requires a substantial amount of walking.
