Set on a beautiful campus you will pass large sculptures en route to the vast free museum. My favorites are the large historical oil paintings, Asian artifacts, and religious sculptures.

This museum was a hidden gem on the Princeton Campus. I had a guided tour during Princeton Preview, and I was not disappointed. I was on crutches, and the staff was very accommodating to me.
