Came here with my Aunt while in town. This is a great Art Museum with a great selection. You can take a hour or hours to tour this place. Definitely worth your time to stop in.

Living in Princeton, I have been to this Museum many times. What makes it worthy of review at this time is actually its consistent quality. The borrowings that occur from such prestigious museums as the Phillips allow those in charge at the University Art Museum...More

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