“What a gem in NW Arkansas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

I have visited this museum twice in the last 3 months and am just amazed at the quality of the layout and the exhibits. This is a really nice museum for anywhere, but to be in my own backyard, it's amazing! I am very thankful to the owner for choosing to make this display available to the public--and at NO CHARGE! I had never understood what banner stones were for until visiting here. I highly recommend it!

“Great collection for museum size”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

As an anthropologist, I am picky about museums. This one had an impressive collection for a small museum in a small town. It was a little heavy on projectile points, but if you love looking at stone tools, you will love this place.

“Arrowheads A-Plenty”

Very well designed and presented museum of Native American Art and History. Fascinating collections of arrowhead and flint stones from down through the ages. A must-see stop in Bentonville.

“Very interestig”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Interesting display of a variety of native American objects. There is no charge for the museum but donations are accepted. I think we were there a little less than two hours.

“Unexpected pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

What a surprise this museum was! It began with the private collection of David Bogle and has grown into this beautiful little museum which his family shares with the public free of charge. Artifacts and information span 16,000 years of history. Among the treasures -- examples from one of the largest collections of eagle feather headresses in the country and beautiful Native American blankets. Everything is well displayed -- a very professional exhibition. This is a must-see for the area.
