Great little art museum with an amazing collection of impressionist art and pre-columbian art. Many contemporary exhibits, and a good snapshot of many different art periods in humanity. Highly recommended!

If you are visiting Princeton don’t miss this rare gem. Excellent collection of art, mostly gifts from the Princeton alumni, plus new, often changing, exhibits. Free entry, donations appreciated. Make sure to check the official web site for opening hours.

Visit this museum on the campus of Princeton. Take at least two hours. It hides a nice collection of European paintings and drawings. Sone are famous: one Van Gogh, one Rembrandt, probably a Heronimus Bosch (!) and f.e. Monnet.

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