Campus Collections Outdoor Walking Tours

Princeton University is home to one of the country’s most significant collections of 20th- and 21st-century public sculpture.  

Join a guided walking tour of the campus collections with an Art Museum guide and discover a variety of artworks by modern and contemporary sculptors, from Henry Moore to Maya Lin. Learn about materials and techniques and explore elements of design and balance.  

We offer one-hour tours of sculptures in two campus neighborhoods: Main Campus and Residential Colleges. All tours are held outdoors, rain or shine, and are stair-free. (Due to weather, tours are not offered December through February.)
