Owner description: When Sam Walton opened his 5&10 on the Bentonville town square in 1950, he had no idea he'd planted the seeds for what would become the global leader in retail, saving millions of people money so they could live better. Today, that humble little dime store is the location of The Walmart Museum. A family-friendly experience in 3 parts, the Museum features a world-class exhibit gallery, Walton's 5&10, and The Spark Cafe. Monday - Thursday: 8:00 a.M. - 9:00 P.M. Friday - Saturday: 8:00a.M. - 10:00P.M. Sunday: 12:00 p.M. - 9:00 P.M.

The Walmart Visitor Center is a great place for families to go. Kids love it. Very interesting, and best of all it is FREE! Go Wal-Mart

Perfect view of Wal-Mart history which is what a museum is all about. I've been before, but my husband had not , he was very impressed.

“Fascinating family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

This small museum and visitors' center tells the Walton family story and the history of Wal-Mart. An amazing story about an amazing man. Small gift shop with retro candies and toys. Located on the lovely town square in downtown Bentonville.

“Interesting Walton and Walmart history.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Living here near Bentonville we were particularly interested in the Walton Family store which started out as a 5 and 10 and rapidly grew. If Sam could only see it now!! Everyone should stop by the visitor center to see how Sam's vision grew from practically nothing into the greatest American Dream!
