NEW BRITAIN, Connecticut, U.S.A. – No matter what type of art you like, there’s always something interesting to see at the New Britain Museum of American Art.

The museum has both permanent galleries filled with old murals and classic Hudson River Valley paintings and it has temporary exhibits. 
The oil paintings of Tom Yost, mostly Connecticut landscapes, are currently on display.
An extensive collection of modern art fills the gallery on the second floor including an impressive piece from Andy Warhol.

It’s all a must-see for art lovers.
