We parked in the campus visitor lot and walked to the chapel. A friendly security officer noticed our confusion and directed us to the chapel. Along the way, we enjoyed the grand architecture of Princeton University's buildings -- it's a lovely campus! Stained glass windows,...More

Expect to take tons of pictures and enjoy the quiet. What a lovely place. Worth a stop on the nickel tour of campus---please don't miss it. Just beautiful and breath-taking.

More like a soaring cathedral than a chapel! The acoustics were great for many, many singers and the Westminster Bell Choir. Wonderful!

Worth while just to step in and see. But if you can go on a day the organ is being played, well, you just gotta experience it!

While visiting Princeton University we visited this beautiful chapel. It is large enough to be a cathedral and the stained glass was awesome. The light shining thru the glass cast wonderful colors on the stone walls, very beautiful! Open all day and no cost.

It's not often one reviews churches here on Tripadvisor. Indeed, I have yet to write a review, I think, despite the fact that I've spent time in hushed reverie in the pews of Sacre Coeur in Paris on Christmas Eve. I did not review when...More

If we're talking about the same glass windows, one of the images is that of Melchizidek, who was the first priest of The Bible. We find Melchizidek early on in the Old Testament, where Moses gives a great donation to him... More

There is an audio tour of the chapel available online. I agree with the person who suggested a search. I'm not allowed to post the link.
