Excellant Art Gallery
Jun 2019
Always enjoy the Art Museum. When I visit my daughter in Princeton we always go to the Princeton Museum.
We have lunch then enjoy the beautiful art collection Princeton University has. We have been there many times and it never disappoints.

A Must in Princeton
Nov 2019
A wonderful museum. It's worth a visit. If you want to see Marilyn Monroe's original painting by "walking Warhol", you'll have the chance to see it there. A very discreet collection of Colombian music and a good representation of Asian art; Greek and European. Worthy visit.

Hidden gem

Nice small art museum in the middle of Princeton University's campus. It's worth spending a few hours here. Nice collection and there's always special exhibitions that add to the appeal.

Gem of a Museum
Feb 2020 • Friends
A real gem of a museum tucked into the university campus. Nice collection of pre-columbian artifacts. Small but we'll curated permanent collection and changing exhibits. Admission is free. Why not stop in?

Hidden ( seriously) gem
Feb 2020 • Couples
The museum is located inside the campus and there are no signs to get there, you have to ask . We end up being late for the ( free) guided tour , the eternal feast and the art of banqueting in Chinese art was awesome,the lower level is the most interesting one with a large Mayan, Asian and old Greek collection. Definitely worth going

This is a lovely museum that is located right in the middle of the Princeton University campus. While not very big, it is well worth a visit.

Fabulous docent "highlights" tour
Jan 2020
This is a gem of a museum with extraordinary examples of both Greek, Roman, and Chinese art among others.
It's manageable, never crowded, free, and altogether delightful.
It will close in approximately one year for a massive multi-year building project (new facility) so go now!

I have visited this wonderful little university museum many times to see a special exhibit, but never to see pieces from the collection.

I had heard that the museum had a number of significant paintings by French Impressionists and decided to check it out. I would call the collection "small, but mighty."

Displayed on the second floor, there are works by Cezanne, Van Gogh (see photo), Monet, Sisley, Pizzaro and others. If you love the French Impressionists, you will love the beautiful examples at this museum.

It should be noted that most of the paintings are on "long term loan from the Pearlman Foundation." How long is "long?" I don't know. Check with the museum before you go to see if they are still on display.

So much to see!

I’d heard great things about this museum, and it lived up to the hype. It’s a great collection with pieces from all over the world, and different eras.

We spent less than 2 hours and surely didn’t see it all! The gift shop had some beautiful items as well. I’d love to go back sometime and explore more. It’s an impressive collection!
