If you’re in the Princeton area, you definitely must stop into the museum. It’s very small and compact but chock-full of phenomenal artwork. The museum store is also not to be missed! Enjoy!

The museum is free to enter, and is well worth spending a couple of hours strolling round the various pictures and artists. A lot of well known artists in an accessible environment

I've been to the Princeton University Art Museum many times now. They have excellent exhibits that change on a regular basis which are always great to see. Their permanent collection is just amazing. And its all free!

I come here anytime I'm in town; I love the permanent collection, and there are often great touring exhibits as well. For a university art museum, this place is an embarrassment of riches--and admission is free!
