  • Amazed by the amount of Well known art pieces contained within the art Museum. Degas, Rodan, Monet, Warhol, to name a few of the famous artists whose work is displayed. Certainly worth the time. 
  • Look, it's Princeton University. The art is top notch. The permanent collection is fabulous and spans every continent (except maybe Australia and Antarctica). It's free. They have programs for kids on Saturday mornings. They have guides for kids to look at art. It's free. It's big enough to be interesting but small enough to handle. Love it.
  • A small collection, have pieces represent all style and time periods, some of them are very high quality. Not a place one should make a trip to visit, but if a art lover happen to be in the area, it is definitely worth a visit.
  • Excellent museum with great art collection. I like the lower level the most, it's full of archeological finds!
  • A hidden gem in the heart of Princeton. Right on the Princeton University campus this museum has artifacts and paintings from all over the world. Real Monet's, Van Gogh's, and a whole lot more. Best of all it's free!
  • Spent a whole afternoon here. Amazing place. Can't wait to go back
