I'm not interested in art... Or might I say I wasn't until I visited this place! Awesome!!!! I visited on a rainy day because there was nothing else to do in the rain! So glad it rained me in to this place! Enjoyed everything about it! So neat. The employees were very helpful and friendly. The admission was FREE!!! This is a MUST SEE kind of place no matter the weather so GO!!!!

Crystal bridges is so artsy and creative. Thy have so much art from the 1500s to now. The have different rooms and areas to go to. They also have a kids area for them to make art themselves. They have two cafes and a nice seating area with a wonderful view of the water. They also provide beautiful walking trails and bike trails. This is the place to go if you want to see art or visit bentonville.

The architecture and natural setting of this museum are truly inspired. We have visited several times. There is often a traveling exhibit so there is usually something new to see as well as old favorites. It may be worthwhile to reserve a viewing time on some of the special traveling exhibits. There are several marked walking trails and outside areas that feature sculptures and labels on some of the many native trees and flowers that surround the museum itself. The museum restaurant also has beautiful outside views and while a little pricey, an interesting, well- prepared menu. There are sometimes concerts and special events there in the evening. A wonderful gift by Alice Walton to her hometown.

This is a must see. The buildings by Moshie are amazing as well. This is Bentonville's crown jewel.
Alice Walton has amassed truly great collection.

This all-American museum is a world-class architectural work of art in and of itself.
It is impressive as you approach it and awe-inspiring over and over again as you stroll through its many beautiful galleries. And of course the paintings, window views, statuary and assorted works of art take you from Charles Wilson Peale in the eighteenth century to the twenty-first century through Thomas Eakins, Mary Cassat, Norman Rockwell, and Andy Warhol among many other great artists
Be sure to go to this museum and when you reach the end of your tour there's a nice snack bar awaiting you!.
