While the major art collections are probably not best suited for younger children, the outdoor sculptures and indoor craft area are perfect for kids of all ages. This amazing museum is nestled into a natural setting lending the whole experience as a "nature wonderland meets artistic expression ." Kids can paint, build and explore in this beautiful environment. Highly recommend... More

Huge art museum in a very beautiful building and around it. It's free and you can easily spend the whole day surrounded by pieces from the biggest names of the American art. A little far from everything, but if you're somewhere nearby, you won't regret visiting! Tip for families: there is an indoor adventure park for kids about half a... More

The museum is FREE ! Plenty of parking as well.Wonderful exhibits inside and out. I enjoyed the walking paths outside as much as the inside. From the museum we walked 10 minutes to Bentonville Square via the trail behind the museum. Also checked out crystal spring that is located on the property as well. We did the activity with two...

The Crystal Bridges Museum is free! There is art of every kind throughout the museum and they usually have a special collection on display. I was totally impressed with the wide variety of work and the helpfulness of the staff. It is totally handicap accessible. There is also an outdoor walking path that loops around and through the museum, pond... More

On a recent stop in Bentonville, AR we were fortunate enough to have time to visit Crystal Bridges. It is an incredible undertaking to house so much history and art in such an amazing facility. This is a must do if you are in the area. Admission is free and it has something for all ages.

Stopped by on our way through Bentonville. I would recommend this to everyone! A great variety of painting, sculpture and 3D art inside and on the grounds of the beautiful museum. They have a fun place for small kids to sit down and do some coloring or other projects. Did not seem like a stuffy museum - very open and... More

There is not a lot to do in Bentonville so visiting this Museum is something to do. It takes a couple hours to fully see everything and there are a few amazing things to see. The life like figures of men were freaky and as real looking as could be. The food court I have to say was not bad.... More

It is amazing that such a facility as this would be free to the public. It is just beautiful to look at and the grounds are very well cared for. It was too cold to do much outside the day we went but there were some lovely walking trails and gardens.
