The museum has interesting exhibits and is small enough to tour within one hour. There is a small shop in the front. Outdoor seating for warm weather. The fall exhibit on Slavery and Princeton was amazing.

Just saw a great photography exhibit there. Nice enviornmnet and good way to spend an hour or so while still getting errands done in town. Located on Princeton's campus and is funded by their donors.

Never realized there was an art museum on campus. It was free and the woman at the info desk was helpful in explaining what was on display
