Beautiful is an understatement when trying to describe the landscaping and architecture. Wear comfortable shoes and spend the time walking the trails outside that lead to outdoor art/sculptures after you have completed the inside. Best time to visit would be spring when the flowers are all blooming or in the fall when the leaves are turning. The restaurant within is... More

This museum may be new but it does have some remarkable art. The grounds are beautiful and the buildings that comprise the museum are well laid out.

I visited this museum a few weeks ago. The grounds are beautiful; plan some time to walk the trails. The architecture is stunning and by itself worth the trip. The art - well, one of the people visiting with me said "right artists, wrong pictures." Some minor works by major artists, and major works by lesser known. That's OK -... More

First of all this is an amazing place. There is always some great traveling exhibits here. Also has some great early American art and African American art. One warning for parents, they don't put ropes up or anything so you must keep your kids at arm's reach. Not a bad idea anyway since it can get very crowded. In fact... More

This is GREAT!!! From the grounds, the amazing buildings and the art, this place will pull you in. Original art by Albert Beirstadt, Maxfield Parrish and MANY others!! The grounds offer great walks and flowers along the lake as well as art pieces along the trail. Admission is free since this place is supported by the Walton family of Wal-Mart... More

We have visited the museum twice. Each time it had new exhibits to see. The outdoor trails are beautiful and a nice place to get some exercise after traveling. We are looking forward to seeing the Frank Lloyd Wright house they are installing on the grounds.

Museum is beautiful - our timing wasn't great as the 20th C galleries were closed so new exhibits could be brought in - so we were a bit disappointed - if you can choose when you'll visit, check the website for information.
