On a wedding weekend we enjoyed a beautiful day of strolling the campus. The buildings are so beautiful and historic, the scenery idealic and the history you feel will just transport you back in time. The highlight for am was the art museum not to be missed, although not very big it is packed with such a wide variety there... More

The campus and grounds are beautiful. THey have maintained the classical theme throughout the grounds, even on the newer buildings. Some contruction still taking place, but still are great location to study.

There's much to be said for the architecture of the buildings that make the old part of the Princeton University, and if you take a tour led by one of the kids smart enough to have made it there as a student, you will further your education in the middle of one of the most beautiful places you'll ever visit...

We took a walk in the campus late in the night where some beautiful light up and historical structure of buildings were seen. We really envy of those guys going to the university. Surrounding atmosphere was also gorgeous!

You can't tell you were in Princeton if you don't take a long walk inside the University. The interior gardens, buildings and a nice and impressive church makes this 200 year old landmark the place to enjoy.

I wanna go to school here simply for the scenery and architecture. The area around the school has plenty to offer, entertainment and food.

Stunning campus. Really impressive. We spent hours there and its impossible for us to forget those great buildings, squirrels there, food courts around and especially the pizzas 😋 btw the prices are so low that the students can easily go there every single day of the semester so dont leave princeton without stopping by a pizzaria 🙋

This visit was for adults but could've been an exciting place for children. I say that because we enjoyed the architecture, a family with children beyond the age of eight would also because it was like walking in Harry Potter's University. We took the tour, led by a junior at the school who enlightened us as to why in specific... More

Came here with my daughter and was remarkably impressed. If you go to the informational meeting prior to the campus tour it is held in the classroom in which Einstein taught. That alone makes this a must visit stop. Walking the rest of this pristine campus was just icing on the cake.
