You don't want to pass this up!

It's fantastic and free! Their permanent collection is truly world-class. Seriously, go see it. It's well worth the drive.

Bentonville may be a small town of 40,000 but Crystal Bridges Museum rivals the great museums of the world. Alice Walton had a vision to share American art and create a home for it that has become a destination place since it opened 11/11/11. The architecture is stunning and unique with acres of wooded areas and lush landscapes. A Frank... More

The museum was so beautiful. It's a high class museum haha. I went there on Thursday and it's free not including the dance. There were a lots of activities for little kids such as Zumba, and making beads. The activities are different everyday. It's fun. The pictures, sculptures, houses, paintings were really cool. There were many people at lunch time,... More

Crystal Bridges Museum is a wonder. The architecture of the actual museum inside and out, the art, the scenery, the landscape, and the atmosphere mesh to become an incredible experience. The fact that the museum is free of charge is the icing on the cupcake! (You can pay to see the exhibits that rotate in) The docents and guides are... More

We have been to Crystal Bridges many times. The visits are always worthwhile. On this trip, I noticed a number of new acquisitions (noted on the information postings beside each work). The facility also hosts regular events for budding artists of all ages. On this trip, a supervised class for children's art appealed to my granddaughter, who loved the opportunity... More

The special dance exhibit was fantastic. We enjoyed how it was laid out chronologically and included multiple ethnic groups. The short videos were both instructional and inspiring.

We made the trip to this town to see this building and their collection. Very pleasant experience in a lovely setting. Would have liked to see a bigger collection, although there were some very interesting pieces in it. LOVED the Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian house that was transported and rebuilt here. Reserve your tickets for that in advance online because... More

Having visited once one would think that the museum wouldn't have a lot of new stuff to offer but i was pleasantly surprised. First one must visit this museum at night and during the day. It's a completely different museum at night; the light and shadows play out on the water and buildings- it is magical! We visited on December... More

This is the second time we went to this museum. Just love walking the grounds, the beautiful artwork, and Frank Lloyd Wright home on the property. Definitely take the tour of the house; it will help you understand the style of the home. Best news is the museum is free thanks to the generosity of the Walton family. A must... More
