I went there with my cousin earlier today and was quite impressed with the breadth and depth of the collection. There was meanwhile no charge to see everything. Definitely somewhere to go if you are in or around Princeton, NJ.

I was walking by and entered. I could not imagine it was so big. It has a good range of items, from Ancient pieces to modern art.

I went there this past weekend; we got there about 90 minutes before closing, and didn't finish seeing everything. So I would spend at least a couple hours here. They have some nice impressionist paintings.

Since there is no parking on campus, I generally park on or near Nassau Street and walk to the museum.
