I am an American Indian Artifact enthusiast, and found the array of artifacts engrossing. Wife loved it too. A real gem for the area.

Wow, what an unexpected local treasure. We were looking for something else to see after visiting Crystal Bridges and someone suggested this place. The exhibits are well executed, diverse and the accompanying audio interesting.

Dear rogersmom14,

Thank you for taking the time to write us such a nice review. I know after a large field trip such as yours, things can be a bit hectic, but it really does help us with out advertising. It is very much appreciated, and you and the kids are always welcome back-- either for another class trip, or just you and the family.

We have visited this museum and find that this is a wonderful place to take family as it is full of such great artifacts and so well displayed. Mr. Bogle and his staff have done an amazing job of making this a top notch place for all to visit in Bentonville. This was our third trip there and recommend it to anyone visiting the area. Thank you for having such a place for others to visit and learn. Take the time so visit as there is so much to see for all. Curtis & Sally Hodge

A friend told us about this museum, and I'm so glad we made the trip over to see it! We actually spent as much time here as at Crystal Bridges! and it was open at 9 AM which was helpful to us (two small children with low tolerance for long days in museums!) The three-year-old found enough to hold his interest (sat through the videos...twice) and the arrowhead hunt was a perfect ending...we adults found a lot to enjoy, too. The audio tour was most helpful and informative, and the displays were well-done and inclusive. What a find! Thanks for a great experience;
we'll be back!
