A snapshot of Einstein at his Princeton home. Collection of the Historical Society of Princeton.

Did you know that the Historical Society of Princeton is home to one of the largest collections of Albert Einstein’s belongings in the world? Stop by the Discovery Center to view collection highlights and other materials that capture the human side of Princeton’s most famous resident.

The Historical Society of Princeton’s Open Archive series allows visitors to interact with rare and little-seen artifacts and documents from HSP’s vast collection. Featuring a different theme each time, these events present historical material with minimal interpretation (no labels or glass boxes here!) and encourage visitors to make observations, ask questions, and be the historian themselves. HSP’s Curator of Collections and Research will be on hand to share information and answer any questions.

This Pi Day Princeton event is co-sponsored by the Princeton Public Library and the Historical Society of Princeton.
