“A great place to visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

I have been going to the Princeton University Art Museum for three years now. I can honestly say it is the best art gallery to visit on a budget because it is free and it is set in beautiful Princeton. I will add that they do have a donation box when you enter and I highly encourage you to donate.

The museum is home to many fine works of art both modern and archaic. When I was there in November they had an interesting exhibit on Egypt. I always make it a priority to visit the Museum when I am visiting the area. It is a great place to go with family, solo trip, and even couples.

“Small Gem on Campus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

This has a bit of everything since it is designed to expose students to a wide range of expression and cultures. In addition to guiding yourself there are docents on hand as well as special lectures to shed new light on the varied collection on view.

“Great little gem of artwork”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Wonderful collection in a beautiful gallery. Its not as large as other museums, but the artwork and knowledge of docent equals world renown museums such as the Met and Louvre. Try to take the guided tour on Sat and Sun at 2pm. Suggested donation on $5.
