At Princeton University Art Museum, often referred to simply as PUAM, discover world-class collections hailing from all parts of the world. With a collecting history that dates back to the 1750s, the museum has amassed over 97,000 works of art. As you walk through PUAM’s galleries, see many of those pieces on display.

Join a group tour of Princeton University Art Museum. These tours are offered daily throughout the week. Embark on a self-guided family adventure, which is designed to help children learn about the museum’s exhibits.

Stroll through the museum’s collections, which are arranged geographically. Admire an extensive collection of African masks worn during traditional rites of passage. See an array of early American portraiture, many featuring prominent figures from the university’s history. Check out an array of ancient artifacts, ranging from Greek statues to Byzantine jewelry to Islamic tiles. Discover a range of ancient American art, spanning from Chile to Alaska.

From Shang dynasty oracle bones to Buddhist sculpture, admire the museum's large collection of Asian art. See pieces from outstanding European artists, such as Jean-Léon Gérôme and Claude Monet. View a small but impressive collection of contemporary art, featuring works from Vasily Kandinsky, Max Ernst, Pablo Picasso and others. Princeton University Art Museum also has vast collections of photographs and sketches.

As you tour the galleries, watch for featured exhibits. Aside from the permanent collections, check out the temporary exhibitions on display in Princeton University Art Museum. These range in focus from single artists to a broader exploration of a culture through art.

Visit the museum throughout the year. It is closed on Mondays and on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and Independence Day.
