On the way to NYC, I stopped by Princeton University, mostly to visit the art museum but and to walk around the campus and examine the buildings and architecture. There is a lot of history on this campus and provides a nice stroll around the campus. When visiting the campus, must visit the art museum.

The tour was thorough, complete and of an appropriate length for the weather. Once we finished our tour, my daughter decided that she would apply Early Action.

We had a wonderful day strolling around all the shoppes and restaurants. Once we had brunch at PJ'S Pancake House, we strolled around campus and marveled at the beautiful old buildings and some of the new ones as well. The campus is truly gorgeous place to walk around for tourists and an amazing place full of history, to go school.

Gorgeous campus in the fall with a rich history! They even had a "ghost tour" offered leaving from the campus store. Wish we had time to take advantage of that! The museum was closed when we went -- which we were bummed about. But their acapella group made up for it! We found them randomly singing in a corridor on... More

Very impressive and interesting place. Architecture is very impressive and interesting. You could park the street. About $5 per hour. 1-2 hours is enough to see the place.

Once you go inside you could feel like you are in a different time zone. Like you are not in New Jersey. European touch. The architecture is superb. You would envy the students studying in the university. Being the number 1 university in America, it make me more proud being a citizen of New Jersey.

No campus tour available on the day we were there, so we just walked around the campus itself. So picturesque and tranquil; and such wonderful architecture. We also explored the newer part of the campus (devoted to engineering and the sciences) to get a better feel for the old and the new. Well worth the time spent, and there are... More

The campus is quite beautiful and picturesque. There are so many paces to see and take great photos. Highly recommended for travelers nearby to stop in.
