This was my second visit to Crystal Bridges, and it was specifically to see State of the Art exhibit. The museum overall may have been my favorite before this week of all museums I've had opportunity to visit in the world, and this visit just confirmed it. State of the Art is a culmination of creative, ambitious and overdue process... More

This museum is an American gem. I have visited most of the major art museums in Europe and Russia and this would rank right there with the best of them as far as the fact that all the art here is from American artists or artists that came to the U.S. and it's all FREE

This is one of the finest museums in the world. They even give kids a bingo card that consist of finding different pieces of art. This really keeps them busy. The variety of and architecture is beyond imagination. This is a must see.

This is a terrific place to take the kids for learning about how much culture America truly does have. They love exploring the grounds and finding all of the areas with the outside sculptures, hidden nooks and crannies. I enjoy the architecture, art, beautiful views and special exhibits. The dinner/lunch area is a wide open space with tons of light,... More

My sister took me here on a fall Sunday afternoon. I had not been in an art museum in I don't know how long so did not know what to expect. Architecture of the buildings as well of the surrounding grounds were impressive to me. The exhibits were top shelf as well. Some of the contemporary art was pretty outstanding... More

My family and I have been to the museum several times and we love it! The building makes the most of the outdoor views and natural beauty of the area. Children are encouraged to explore and there are hands-on activities available to keep them entertained. It is a different visit each season!

If you don't care about art, you will not be happy. Yeah its cool, and the grounds are pretty, but I have been to better. The building is amazing and I love to use the trails. It can get very crowded I would skip the tour and just go through it on your own otherwise you will bore yourself.

I live in New York City and have been to the British Museum in London and the Metropolitan and Frick Museums in Manhattan. So when I visited my mom and sister in Arkansas and they wanted to take me to Crystal Bridges, I must say that I did not have high expectations. What a pleasant surprise! First of all, the... More
