This place is amazing! Starting with the nature trails leading up to the building. The building itself is very futuristic and well laid out. There are many employees watching over the displays, yet they are unassuming in their tasks. They are also friendly and helpful. The art work displayed is beyond description, except to say it is breath taking.

We always love going to Crystal Bridges to see the traveling exhibitions. The Warhol and Wyeth exhibits are two of the best. Even if you don't like art museum's, you'll love walking around the beautiful grounds.

This is a very impressive place, and a must do when in the area. The museum is great, but they don't stop there. The paved trails wind through woods, creeks and gardens. They also have trails through the woods, which we didn't do. Glad we took the long drive.

Northwest Arkansas has a real jewel in Crystal Bridges. This is a state of the art museum. The collection is wonderful! Visiting exhibitions extraordinary! It was a lovely stroll through the museum. The layout is comfortable and quiet. And then take time for lunch at Eleven! While a little pricey it is well worth it. The grounds and walking paths... More

Very broad and diverse collection of artworks from multiple periods. Staff is very accommodating. Very spacious layout. Quaint little gift shop of things from local and international artists. A beautiful, trendy restaurant onsite provided great food.... More

We were fortunate to arrive in the morning before the day became too hot to stroll the grounds. There is an art trail that passes by several sculptures. It was a pleasant, peaceful walk to start the day. The building is magnificent; it takes full advantage of the landscape. When you're in the museum, you have lots of opportunity to... More

We've visited Crystal Bridges before. This time, we were fortunate that our trip coincided with the Warhol/Wyeth special exhibit. It was so well done. I believe the exhibit runs through late fall of this year, so you have time to get there. The museum is always worth a visit, but this exhibit made our trip particularly enjoyable. As always, the...
