I had mixed feelings about patronizing a museum developed by the Walton family given that Walmart has done so much to gut small towns across America. (It's interesting that Bentonville has been sort of reimagined and renovated as sort of an idealized small town. What...More

Very unique building and beautiful grounds. Art gallery is predominantly paintings, I especially liked several of the sculptures. Admission is free to the galleries and grounds.

A most interesting place. Thanks to the Walton Family for providing such an Exhibit for everyone to visit. The Frank Lloyd Wright house was a plus.

We get here every chance we get. The building itself is a work of art, then of course the art inside. Then the extra exhibits, the dome, the Frank Lloyd Wright house, all of it is exceptional.

It’s amazing that you can explore the majority of this place free of charge. We stopped by for a bit while in town but we didn’t have time to see everything and it was way too hot to walk the outside trails. But we plan...More

Yes, you need at least 3 hours, but easy up to 4 hours. I recommend you go between meals or take snacks and enjoy a break outside with your snacks.
