This is a real gem, and it met all of our expectations. Very convenient, with free parking and admission (unbelievable given the world-class art on display). I have read elsewhere that some visitors found the staff overbearing ... this was not the case for us. Each person we met was personable, professional and helpful. We will return in the spring when the grounds are in full bloom. This place is not to be missed.

If you are in the NW Arkansas area you have to see the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. The architecture of the buildings are worth the trip in itself. The "11" restaurant is excellent and well priced. The various art exhibits were awesome and the outdoor trails are not to be missed as well! Best thing is that it is FREE thanks to Wal-Mart (the Walton's were instrumental in it's construction).

The building, staff and setting are gorgeous. The food was very good. We will be back to see other exhibits. Bentonville is lucky to have this wonderful new museum.
