This museum is only five years old, but has the character of one much older than that. The Frank Lloyd Wright house with the audio tour is a great add-on too. The interesting architecture of the museum combined with that of the house, make for a special additional element to the visit.

American art from the beginning to now. Be sure to see the Frank Lloyd Wright house. It's a rare opportunity. The store has really cool stuff too.

Friends said, "Why would you go to Arkansas???" There are several reasons, but Crystal Bridges alone is worth the trip. It is much more than an art museum although the art is wonderful. The physical spaces and the setting are simply gorgeous. This gift to America by one of the Walmart family members is simply world class.in every way. They... More

It has a lot of varied and interesting artwork. There is even a Van Gogh. There are two displays that are totally a must see. One is an oversized chest and head, a selfie if you will. Unbelievably life-like, there is also another one of an old man sitting on a bench. Same thing, totally and unbelievably realistic, Almost kind... More

This is a lovely setting for this museum. Large collection of American art was artfully displayed. Highlight was the Frank Lloyd Wright house on the grounds-don't miss it. The walking trails were very nice...I'm sure they are really pretty in the spring when things are blooming.

What a great place! There is a lot to see and do at the museum. It's amazing that they didn't charge an entry fee when we visited.

If you think you'll see everything in a couple of hours think again. There is so much to see you'd better plan on taking two days.

High quality American art displayed in an exceptional modern building in a natural setting. The works displayed tell the story of the evolution of art in the United States. Works are of a high standard and are displayed in excellent condition. Some pieces are truly exceptional. And the building is also exceptional - a series of exhibition spaces linked by... More

We visited Bentonville for the museum. Your daddy is rich and you get to buy a bunch of great art, and then you build a modern, groovy, thoughtful space that houses interesting, interactive exhibits with an example of every SINGLE American artist with great food and lovely vistas! Boo Yah! With a drive within 500 miles. Fantastic!
