How to Visit
Getting to Princeton
The University is easily accessible by train, which runs along the Northeast Corridor line and also stops at Newark airport. Both Amtrak and NJ TRANSIT trains stop at Princeton Junction. Travelers can then transfer to a single-car train operated by NJ TRANSIT, known locally as the "Dinky," for the five-minute ride to Princeton Station. The station is located on Alexander Street at the southern end of campus. The walk from Princeton Station to the library is ten to fifteen minutes up a gradual hill.
If you prefer to drive, metered parking is available on Nassau Street and hourly parking is available at the Spring Street Garage on Spring Street in Princeton. University Visitor parking is available at the structure at 148 Fitzrandolph Rd. Please see the University website for more information.
For accessibility information, please see the website for Princeton Transportation and Parking Services.

The Milberg Gallery is on the first floor of Firestone Library (1 Washington Road, Princeton, New Jersey) and is open from 10am to 6pm Monday through Friday, 11am to 6pm Saturday and Sundays. The front door to the building is across the quad from Princeton University Chapel.

Visiting as a Group
Self-Guided Group Visits
“Toni Morrison: Sites of Memory” is part of a larger set of Morrison-related activities taking place in the university this year, and it is but one of a number of possible cultural experiences on offer when you visit Princeton. If you are planning to visit the exhibit as a group, we highly recommend that you include the art museum in your visit to have a fuller experience. This can include options such as “Campus Art”, “Art@Bainbridge” and “Art on Hulfish.”
We anticipate large visitor numbers for “Toni Morrison: Sites of Memory” (Milberg Gallery, Firestone Library). Due to limited facilities and the size of the gallery, we are unable to accommodate groups of more than 30, and we highly recommend that you book a visit if you are a group of more than 10. We expect most visitors will be able to fully experience the exhibit in approximately 30-45 minutes. These visits, which are available Monday-Friday, can be booked with Louise Barrett, Visitor Logistics Coordinator, Princeton University Art Museum by completing the online form to Create a Group Reservation. This form is for all museum group visits, and some sections may be irrelevant for your request. You will be able to choose the Milberg Gallery under Program Location in addition to the museum sites when booking to indicate your interest in including the library in your visit. We will do our best to accommodate the day/time of your request. Louise will reach out directly to confirm your visit and share logistical information such as bus parking as needed. You can also contact Louise via email: email@example.com or phone: 609-258-3043.
Please book group tours at least two weeks in advance.
We are unable to accommodate group visits to the Milberg Gallery on weekends. If you are using the museum form to book your visit, please be sure to not choose a weekend day. Weekend visitors to the gallery will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis. The gallery has a maximum occupancy of 50.
“Toni Morrison: Sites of Memory” is a scholarly investigation of the literary archive of Toni Morrison and is likely to resonate with students at a high-school curriculum level and older. It is not intended for younger audiences. Information about family programming can be found on the Cotsen Children’s Library website. Teachers and caregivers may wish to preview the exhibition first.
In compliance with the University’s minors on campus policy, groups including minors must have a chaperone ratio of one adult per 10 individuals under the age of 18.
Group tours of the Milberg Gallery are self-guided. We are not able to accommodate guided group tours.
You can also reach Special Collections through the Ask Us! form.
