The best collection of American Art I have seen in the Midwest. I am a working artist and I love this museum. The "State of the Art" exhibit is visionary and wonderful. If it goes on tour and you can see it, you must. Crystal Bridges is the reason I never badmouth Walmart. Thank you Mrs. Walton!

I loved the quality and the quantity of the paintings and sculpture. I especially liked the Audubon exhibit. I plan to return after they have a new display in February. The only thing that I did not like is that the State of The Art visit was too spread out.

I've known about Crystal Bridges for years but only recently visited for the first time. I find there are many people who have no idea there is a stunning art museum in Arkansas. Knowing it was there didn't prepare me for just how beautiful both the museum and its surroundings are. Can't wait to return in the Spring or Fall... More

Unbelievable works of American art located here in Arkansas. Architecture is outstanding and although not a modern art fan they sometimes have showings of many different styles.

All the superlatives applied to Chrystal Bridges are true. The museum attendants are a useful source of information.

This is a lovely museum in a natural setting. I would like to return to see it in the spring or fall. I enjoyed the permanent collection with lots of portraiture. Well worth your time to see. And admission is free!

Beautiful venue, well designed in a fantastic natural setting. Museum can appeal to those interested in art and nature. Very friendly staff. Expect to spend some time here. Beyond whatever exhibit or art you come to see, take in the architecture and context of the buildings and, if desired, walk the nature trails. This is a full experience that should... More

Fantastic location and architecture, usually only found in large, touristy urban areas. Content of the museum is top-notch and the short term traveling exhibits have been fantastic to date. A must to see if within a hundred miles of the area or even as a destination journey.
