I had heard good things about Bentonville - and it is a wonderful town. But it was Crystal Bridges Museum that sealed the deal for me. An impressive collection that spans the ages - the building that the art is housed in is a work of art in itself. And be sure to walk the grounds surrounding the museum and... More

Get your free ticket time early to see the on site Frank Lloyd Wright home that was moved to this location piece by piece. Also go see"Sky Space" must arrive before sunset or... More

Who would have thought that we'd have a world-class American art museum in Bentonville, Arkansas? What a place! I am not an art guy, but I really enjoyed Crystal Bridges. Just the architecture is impressive enough, and what a neat setting it is in. Go to the museum, but bring your bicycles for afterward because you have immediate access to... More

Crystal Bridges focuses on American art from the colonial days to the present, and has fine examples of art from artists from all eras. We wanted to have lunch in the Eleven restaurant, but were delayed en route by horrific rain storms, but it looked elegant.

There are many reasons to visit Bentonville, but Crystal Bridges would be at the top of the list. What a treasure! The museum building alone is a work of art. (The story of how the museum came to be and its design are tucked away in a hallway that leads to the assembly hall and the Frank Lloyd Wright house.... More

First of all you are greeted by the amazing architecture of the museum. Norman Rockwell and Andy Warhol pieces are my favorites. The lifelike sculptures are also unforgettable. The art trail and bike/walking trails are beautiful surrounding the museum itself. We always take our out of town guests through the Frank Lloyd Wright house. Be sure to have lunch in... More

There is so much to enjoy at Crystal Bridges, don't try to take it all in too quickly! Pick a nice, sunny day because the outdoor exhibitions of this museum are as remarkable as the indoor exhibitions. In addition to world-class artwork inside, you also can take a tour of a Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian home that was carefully relocated... More

The reason I went was to see the Frank Lloyd Wright house that had been moved there from New Jersey. I find his style to be amazing and intimate without being overwhelming. The museum is interesting, but I wondered how young children would feel about it. Seemed more oriented toward adults. There is no charge to get in. There is... More

I went as part of APSI training. Friends that have visited the museum prior, said it was boring for the most part, however, hearing that the Walton's had a few Warhol's in their collection, grabbed my attention. I will say that I did enjoy the museum, as there were several pieces of art that were beautiful and mind stirring. Of... More
