We were in Princeton and we're having lunch near by, we thought we would check out the museum the cost is 5 per adult but it is well worth it. Very cool dinosaur bones and rocks, local arts and historic items. Worth the visit.

It's a really great museum and all about the history of the town. It's all by donations. They also have a really cool rock exhibit if your into that type of stuff.
