  • One of my favorite places in the world. Containing 5% of every famous artists we can all think of, this art museum is awesome. Artwork from all over the world and pushing the importance of art; impacting everyone who looks into the past, present, and future.
  • A small, yet solid University museum. Princeton enjoys many works of public art and has an impressive selection in its library as well available for the public to observe and to serve the needs of its Art and Architecture majors. The gift shop has excellent selections. As this is a pedestrian campus, parking will be difficult.
