If you are the kind of person who goes on safari to check off "the Big Five", you will like this museum. It is basically a place to check off that you have seen exactly one painting each by a lot of famous artists. ,i.e, it is an ego trip for Mrs Walton.

Attended BodyTraffic show at 7:00 pm on a Thursday evening. Ticket pick up was smooth and courteous. Restrooms are clean. Plenty of staff to check tickets, hand out programs, etc. Walton Arts Center is a very nice event stage. Kudos to the team!

Very nice theatre, new lobby area, easy and cheap parking. The bar and restaurant district is in the same location. Comfortable seats, not too large of a venue.

WAC continues to provide top shows in excellent venue. Thanks to the support of local/national sponsors, we see great Broadway Series shows at a fraction of the cost compared to other cities. Every seat is a good seat in this theater and the renovated lobby is first class.

We have attended a few events now since the reopening. The SONA symphony produced a wonderful holiday musical concert. The Broadway show program is coming soon. Those that saw The Book of Mormon said it was wonderful. Don't miss the regional artists sale in the shop.

Walton money made this theater what it is. The best live stage presentations in N.W. Arkansas. Easy to get to and Dickson Street university bar scene all around.. Plenty of action.
