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 student tour 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.  

Currently, tours are open to Princeton University students, faculty, and staff. 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.)
