Princeton University Art Museum

Since its founding in 1883, the Princeton University Art Museum has exhibited some of the most significant and controversial pieces of art owned by any university. Openness is the theme of the building; from the entrance nearly all the galleries are visible. Among the notable pieces of art in the 60,000-piece collection are Veronese's The Rest on the Flight to Egypt, Monet's Water Lilies and Japanese Bridge, Andy Warhol's Blue Marilyn, American art, Chinese scrolls and bronzes, photography, pre-Colombian gold, Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Mesopotamian antiquities, and African art.

The museum's hours are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. The museum is closed on Mondays. To learn more about the Princeton University Art Museum, please click here.
