We visited Crystal Bridges while in North West Arkansas. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They have some amazing artwork on display and the is no charge to visit the museum itself. There is a charge to see the special exhibits. Well worth the trip if you are in the area.

Friends said to be sure to see the museum when in the area. So glad we did! Excellent exhibits, beautifully design complex, well organized, and very friendly docents. Take the time to check it out. And their shop was better stocked with artful items, better than other similar venues. Well worth the time. The collection is divided into periods in... More

This is an incredible museum, well worth your time. My family likes to eat here. You would have to drive a long way to visit a museum like this.

We took a lovely drive from Tulsa to Bentonville the last half of November and the fall foliage was WONDERFUL!!! We walked from downtown to the museum - a great walk on a trail through the woods. Unbelievable free admission thanks to Walmart sponsorship. This museum is larger than I imagined and set right over/beside a lake. We also went... More

We spent about 1.5 hours at Crystal Bridges and enjoyed every minute and it is FREE. The museum is wonderful and the surrounding area is very pretty.

This was our first visit to Crystal Bridges. This is perhaps the best (only?) good thing that Wal-mart has given to the world. There are many well-known figures represented herein, such as Eakins, Cassatt, Sargent, Weber, Oldenberg, Rockwell, and Curry, as well as lesser-known artists. The building is interesting, and beautifully located in a ravine that was gorgeous on the... More

Crystal Bridges is simply a national treasure (free!). When we come to this area, we always pay a return visit. This trip we toured the Frank Lloyd Wright House, which is majestically situated with nature, just like FLW would have done (free, but be sure to reserve tixs online!). We also viewed the Art of American Dance special exhibit (fee),... More

FAN-TAS-TIC The building itself and grounds are worth the visit even omitting the art works inside. And the entry fee is zero.

A inexpensive place to spend some time. It changed my opinion of fine art. The architecture was really cool.
