A great collection of various forms of art. The architecture of Crystal Bridges and trails and sculptures around the museum are as interesting as the art inside. Recently opened the “Usonian” house designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Reservations recommended for the "guided tour" of the "Usonian" house. Free admission for everything but Special Exhibits.

My wife and i spent the better part of one day at the museum. Arriving around 10, we spent around 2.5 hours touring the main museum galleries, a very diverse collection of predominately American artists. After a short lunch in town, we returned to visit the current exhibition of American Folk Art. This exhibition required a $10 entry fee (the... More

We have the great good fortune to live in Bentonville, AR, home of the world-class Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. From its inception to its completion, no expense was spared and no detail overlooked to insure that it would equal or surpass any other institution of its kind anywhere. Renowned architect Moshe Safdie's building, set in a beautiful wooded... More

I have been here before however they have since rebuilt a Frank Lloyd Wrights house. I just love that style. The only bad thing is you have to schedule time to get to go inside. You can look around at some distance from the outside. They only allow 14 people in it at one time.

We visited on a beautiful spring day and the museum was so much fun. My kids especially loved the hiking trails and exploring the grounds. It's extra $ to see the traveling exhibits but, everything else was free. We will be back!

My friends and I traveled to the museum from Table Rock Lake (about 1.5 hrs). This museum is phenomenal and an incredibly beautiful and peaceful setting. The collect is so varied, something for everyone. And best of all it's free except for a fee for special exhibits. The cafe has wonderful farm to table selections. Definitely worth the effort.

Crystal Bridges is one of the finest museums I have ever been to. It's setting is perfect, nestled in a little wooded valley with a small creek; it is simply gorgeous. Tranquil, peaceful, and calm.

This was my third trip to the museum and my husbands second. We went especially to see the traveling Folk Art from NYC and were so thrilled with the eclectic variety of items. We have visited the museum in NYC but there were only 2 items that we had seen there. The rest were new and interesting. The quilts were... More
