There are many tours in the "first campus center" the problem is they are more designed for attracting undergrad students , so not much sight seeing in there but still was very good Make sure to visit the chapel and the central theater amazing places

What a wonderful place to visit. We have been to Cambridge and Oxford but Princeton is so much better. The museum is excellent.
