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!

The museum includes some exceptional works of art. The medieval room was especially interesting, but there is also a very fine quality Van Gogh that should not be missed. Worth a special trip as a destination on its own, and should also be a part...More
