Free, closed Mondays. Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, 10am–5pm Thursday, 10am– 10:00 pm, Sunday 1–5pm

Described by Fodor’s as “the best small town museum in the world”, this is not so much a small town as a large university with a museum on its campus. Only five percent of its 92,000 objects are on show at any given time, and there are regular temporary exhibitions. Around 5,000 items make up its Ancient, Byzantine and Islamic art collection, with funerary reliefs from Palmyra, and a substantial quantity of mosaics from Antakya (Antioch) where the university was involved in excavations in the 1930s. More recently, Princeton has been involved in excavations on Cyprus.
