The Cushing Center: “Insightfully beautiful”

24 February 2014 - 2:10pm by Andy Hickner

Since its opening in June 2010, the Cushing Center has become a destination of interest to many visitors including students from area schools, members of the Yale University and the New Haven community, medical students, physicians, and writers worldwide.   As of page 126 of the guest book, visitors have come from at least 33 US states and 46 countries including places as far away as Tasmania and Madagascar.

Last year we provided guided tours to over 2,300 visitors, while many others ventured into the center on their own.  Here are a few of the comments left behind by visitors.

The center is open to all:

Sunday:  9:30am-8:00pm

Monday-Friday:  8:00am-8:00pm

Saturday:  10:00am-7:00pm

If you don’t have a Yale ID you’ll need to show a picture ID at the library circulation desk to borrow a proxy ID.

Tours are offered:

Thursday: 2:00pm & Friday: 11:00am & 2:00pm.  

Guests meet in front of the library circulation desk.

The Cushing Center is located in the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library at 333 Cedar St.  From the library entrance, walk straight down the hallway to the Information Room.  Take the stairway on the right and walk down two flights.  The center entrance is on the right.
