One of the most beautiful collection of art in central Jersey. You will walk around in awe, each room taking you back in time from ancient Egypt to Rome, Asia and Africa. Their modern work is exceptional with some of the Masters' paintings on display....More

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.

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