Crystal Bridges was the highlight of our Arkansas road trip. A great collection of American art, sculpture and architecture curated to speak to a broad audience. Innovative architecture designed melds the view of the art with the natural landscape features. Masterpieces from colonial times to present and features some of the best known American artists. Some works were previously in... More

The architecture is stunning - very modern. The paintings and sculptures are magnificent. Well worth a couple of hours of your time when you are in the Belle Vista area.

I have been to the museum a number of times and there is always something new. Exhibits are updated and changed routinely. The traveling exhibits display items rarely seen anywhere else. There are often fun activities and unusual entertainment happening in the courtyard during the warmer months. A must see for anyone traveling to Northwest Arkansas.

But for me the eye catching part is the nature managed around this place. There are many trails .... clean...gives you feeling of being in jungle with a sense of cleanliness.....I had... More

We just recently moved to NW Arkansas and have already made 4 different day trips just to Crystal Bridges. Browse inside on a rainy day or walk the paths when the weather is nice. Perfect for all ages. Definitely one of the finest of NW AR.

This charming museum reminded me of being in the Louvre in Paris. There is room after room of fine large paintings and it is all in a grand unique series of buildings. It's also free! How is that for amazing. Parking is easy. Then you descend into a grand entrance where a giant spider greets you. The paths around the... More

This truly is an amazing place to visit. Lots of new artwork since I was last here four months ago. My seven year old daughter came along this time and thoroughly enjoyed it as well.

My family and I head out to CB at least once a quarter to see what's new at the museum. This month we took our folks out to visit the newly installed Frank Loyd Wright House that has been erected on the grounds. The house itself was gorgeous and had everyone constantly intrigued by the design and features. It is... More
