This is one of the many museums in the NWA area and is, by far, the best to visit. Entry is free, but don't let that fool you. Greeted warmly, effectively guided on what is on offer and warm thank you for visiting on exit,...More

Bentonville, AR isn’t a name that comes to mind when you think about art. But believe it or not Bentonville now has an art gallery and it does deserve credit for making some serious effort at showcasing decent art work. If you’re lucky you might...More

You do not need advance tickets. They are available daily. The indoor exhibit has already left, but his out door collection is still in place.
