Our group was very impressed with our docent and enjoyed learning from her about the Stella exhibit, as well as a little about the Impressionists whose work is at the museum and a temporary photography exhibit that focuses on different types of Civil Rights Protests.

While their holdings are not huge, the museum is full of gems. They also mount interesting exhibits several times a year.

Free admission open 12pm to 5pm. If you like Art this is a great museum to visit alone or with family and friends.

I was shocked by the breadth of the collection given the size of the building. There are many important works here. I'd say if you go to the Princeton area and don't visit the Art Museum you have made a serious mistake. BTW it is...More

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