We were inspired to visit the Crystal Bridges Art Museum in Bentonville, AR following our visit to the Walmart Museum. We were very glad we decided to come here, as it was a beautiful and peaceful experience! There are some really beautiful and amazing works of art throughout the building and grounds. There are both indoor and outdoor pieces of... More

Being blessed with living in Rogers we can go to Crystal Bridges anytime we want and we have over the years! What is fun is taking friends or family that have never been. We always look foward to the special exhibits they have ( Andy Warhol- Nature, Jamie Wyeth, $8 fee for special exhibits but a great value). New pieces... More

This is incredible inside and out! The restaurant eleven was great as well. We did the Andy Warhol exhibit which was superb.

We went on Mother's Day for the Monet exhibit. There was ONE Monet! I was disappointed. Also, some of the employees were rather rude to other patrons with small children. Luckily, my 9 year old really enjoys art and was very calm that day. The museum itself is beautiful, and very large. I enjoyed the variety of the pieces. There... More

The museum's architecture is impressive and the art delightful. It is hard to get to, but worth a two night stay.(The nearest major airport is Tulsa, a two hour drive away) Because Bentonville is the home of Walmart's headquarters, there is no shortage of fine restaurants.

This one of a kind art gallery spares nothing to make your visit, the best possible. The art is jaw-dropping, the setting is, well not to be explained in writing, it's not doing the venue justice.

Very beautiful museum with some nice art pieces. The building is built on a small pond. Admission is free(paid for by Wal-Mart). They do charge $8.00 for admission to the art that is not on permanent display. Nice walking trails around it. There is also a café, we did not eat but the food we did see looked amazing.

This is a fantastic place for those not wanting to travel far for renowned art. We saw the Warhol and Wyeth exhibits and I was beyond impressed. The experience was interesting, interactive and so much fun! I will be coming back - can't wait for the Frank Lloyd Wright home to be completed!

The building alone is worth seeing, as is the setting. I thought the building was worth more than the collection, which was eclectic and included a lot of modern art, which I admittedly do not like. (one painting was simply solid gray) I did find the layout confusing; often there was no obvious way to walk and we found ourselves... More
