I first visited Crystal Bridges a few months after it was opened. And then pretty frequently when my husband and I lived there (2013-2014) and finally Labor Day 2015. Each visit I've found something new to enjoy and appreciate. I've found that the art collection, itself, takes back seat the campus. The architecture, scenery and trail system are not to... More

We were actually surprized at the professional level of this Museum. It is not typical for such a small town to have such a place and clearly shows the influence the Walton family has on the area. The art was first rate. The grounds were beautiful. We sat and had a bite to eat which was very relaxing and enjoyable.... More

Fay Jones was a student of Frank Lloyd Wright and have viewed much of his work. It was especially interesting to tour the Bachman house which was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, to see Wrights influence on Jones style. Wrights horizontal lines throughout the house interior and exterior are amazing to see. Wright also designed the furniture, lighting and cabinetry... More

This museum did not disappoint. A wide variety of art from paintings & sculptures to a Frank Lloyd Wright house. We took 6 hours to explore inside & out. We also had a delicious lunch at their cafe 11.

We were visiting a friend in NW Arkansas for the week and he brought us here to visit. I didn't have super high expectations, but let me tell you, this museum rivaled most other art museums I've been to. I would actually love to go back some time on my own and spend more time there. Be sure you take... More

This museum is beautiful inside and out! Changing exhibits arrive several times a year. There are lectures and art classes and an extensive library. You can walk nature trails filled with mostly local flora. The permanent exhibits show wonderful art from every time period of American history. Visit again and again and you will find something different each time. Walmart... More

We live near Bentonville so have taken friends and family there a number of times since it opened. No one has ever been disappointed. When we went with our grandkids, they received a "bingo card" that kept them searching out details of paintings clear through the museum. It offers a world-class collection of American art in one of the most... More

We were there because of people telling us about it. It is a beautiful place with tons of art work to see. The best part is that it is free.

A visit to Crystal Bridges is FREE and what a great collection of art. I am in Construction, so to me the building was just as impressive as was the art. The grounds and trail are great.
