I had no idea Princeton had such an amazing collection! This was our first visit so we tried to get the lay of the land by strolling through the whole place. Next visit we will focus on one small area. Highly recommend!

While visiting Princeton it is worth stopping by the Art Museum. It is a small museum but well organized with many sections. In addition to the permanent collection they often have exhibits with a specific theme. I highly recommend it.

This is a FABULOUS museum with many artifacts and art exhibits appropriate for all ages! It really has a phenomenal collection. While it's a smaller museum it certain is captivating. The donation request in lieu of a specified payment is also attractive.

It is free and they have great collections! You can do it in about 2/3 hours and then walk around Princeton or go for food in one of the great restaurants!

OK - this isn't excellent like the Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Louvre. It's excellent as a museum in what is a small university town, otherwise suburban New Jersey. I wouldn't recommend that someone come special to go to this if you are staying...More

Since there is no parking on campus, I generally park on or near Nassau Street and walk to the museum.
